University of British Columbia helped us to take Konek Productions on the map. In the beginning we did a lot of filmmaking with Nanisiniq Arviat History Project interviewing Inuit Elders on climate change, the experiences of being relocated and many other projects that you can learn more about from its website. It was an amazing experience that gave us the opportunity to travel. Once we started travelling for Nanisiniq, the people that watched our presentations started calling us to help them in filmmaking or doing presentations. And we are still gladly working together and doing projects up to today.
The purpose of Nanisiniq was to bridge the gap between Inuit Elders and youth (www.nanisiniq.tumblr.com). We created a film working with Elders, with many hours of interviews spent and many hours of flying time all over the world.
