Stories that reveal hidden corrections between cultures and transform your vision of the world.
As an artist-historian with a PhD in the History and Philosophy of Science, I served as health and environment journalist, then executive director of a health research association, then university professor. I came to realize there is a huge rift between hyper-specialized science that observes Nature from a lab stool or armchair, and folk wisdom from within Nature - wisdom that reveals the intimate connections between all life. In making this film, I got out of my armchair and returned to my first love - the Canadian Arctic. And in so doing, I uncovered oral traditions among the Inuit, which led directly to Norwegian oral traditions, to sea voyages and ultimately to this film. I hope you enjoy it!
