The Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre

In 2015, Indigenous filmmakers from the circumpolar region met at imagineNATIVE to develop an unprecedented project whose purpose was to create a bridge between Arctic filmmakers. With representatives from Alaska to Sápmi, The Arctic Film Circle was born and The Last Walk took its first step.

Funded by the International Sámi Film Institute, with partners that include the Nunavut Film Development Corporation, The Last Walk is a series of three short films created by Indigenous filmmakers from different Arctic regions, each telling their own interpretation of a story of two sisters dealing with tragedy. While sharing a common thread, each film stands apart and speaks to the immense talent that lays north.
