Experimental Eskimos

This is a feature documentary (for CBC and APTN) about 3 young Inuit boys who were taken away from their families at the age of 10 to be part of a Canadian federal government experiment. They grew up to be prominent Inuit leaders, and were crucial members of the team of Inuit who negotiated the first land claims agreements in Canada. You could say that this is one experiment that back-fired on the feds…

This was a co-production between White Pine Pictures and Paunna Productions (an Unikkaat Studios subsidiary). For more information on the project and where to buy it, go to:
