Anirniq is Live

We are very excited to announce the completion and launch of our short film fable Anirniq produced as an entry for the Parallel Lines competition hosted by Philips Cinema and RSA Films (Ridley Scott).

Filmed on the northern tip of Baffin Island, Anirniq – the Inuit word for breath – is a 3 minute film about an Inuit man confronting the loss of his father when a young boy on his first, narwhal hunt.

The story explores the Inuit belief that when someone dies their spirit goes into the living creatures around them and thus the Inuit saying: The great peril of our existence is that our diet consists entirely of souls.

The story and concept was crafted based on the rules of the Parallel Lines competition which challenged filmmakers from around the world to interpret a set six lines of dialogue. The film had to use all six lines and no others in the exact order they were presented. The project was an extremely rewarding challenge and we are proud of the final film that we created and the lengths we went to see it through!

When the time is right, please make sure to vote for our film! Check back with us here or subscribe to get updates. Below are some links to the project:
