Salon Movie - Kitturiaq

From the award-winning director of ON THE LINE comes the unconventional documentary KITTURIAQ. The film unflinchingly follows two men on a 620 km wilderness canoe journey through the vast, remote tundra of the Labrador Plateau- a little-known region of the Canadian North. Seen from the perspective of Malina- a mosquito who joins them on the journey- the film brings the viewer intimately into the experience of the expedition.

In the Mary Jeffery Resource Room (upstairs at the "Root Seller - 478 Village Bay Road) Admission by Donation
