Nunavut Animation Lab: The Bear Facts

Director: Jonathan Wright Year: 2010 Run Time: 4min

This short animation from the NFB's Nunavut Animation Lab tells the story of a colonial explorer whose sailboat lands on Arctic ice, under the stunned eye of an Inuit hunter. The explorer sets down his flags, while the hunter, obviously not impressed by the "discovery" of this territory, quietly resumes his work in this charming and humorous recreation of the first contact between Inuit and Europeans.
