Ajjigiingiluktaaqtugut (We Are All Different)

17 mins / S16 to digital, animation/ 2021

What does it mean to be Inuk? Historically depicted as welcoming and friendly people in remote snowy landscapes, in reality, Inuit live across the globe. Using antique wind-up bears, layered animation, and analogue techniques, McIntyre constructs an animated documentary in an exploration of identity and belonging by Inuit, both in and outside of community. Herself of mixed Inuk and settler heritage, McIntyre asks what it means to belong in a changing world when our ideas of Inuk-ness are so tied to particular representations.
