Rapid change from traditional to modern life in Nunavut, like many post-colonial societies, has concentrated power, wealth, and information in just a few hands. Nipi (voice) examines fundamental questions of democracy, power, and change in Nunavut and indirectly in Canada itself: in education, religion, gender, lifestyle, the distribution of economic development, and the makeup and inner structure of the new leadership class. Nipi listens to Inuit leaders and elders, in their own voices, talking about leadership in the old way of life, and in the new.

Nipi is a part of the Unikaatuatiit (Story Tellers) Series.


Norman Cohn is a director and producer as well as secretary-treasurer and co-founder of Igloolik Isuma’s collective.

Candice Hopkins is a documenta 14 curator.

Zacharias Kunuk is a director as well as president and co-founder of Igloolik Isuma’s collective, Canada’s first Inuit-owned independent production company (est. 1990).

TV Politics is a film program that revisits some of the most significant attempts to articulate a radical approach to the politics of television since the mid twentieth century. It revisits film works conceived for the purpose of rethinking what television could be, while at the same time seeking to provide a different kind of analysis of social and cultural reality.

Tickets: 7.50 € / reduced 7 €
