Before her concert at 20:00, screening of the film If the Weather Permits, directed by Elisapie Isaac in 2003 and produced by the NFB followed by an interview with the artist.

This short documentary studies life in the village of Kangirsujuaq, Nunavik. In this community on the edge of the Arctic Ocean, children’s laughter fills the streets while the old people ponder the passage of time. They are nomads of the wide-open spaces who are trying to get used to the strange feeling of staying put. While the teenagers lap up “southern” culture and play golf on the tundra to kill time, the elders are slowly dying, as their entire culture seems fade away. This film is part of Unikkausivut project.

In partnership with the National Film Board of Canada.

As part of Festival Aurores Montréal.
