SCREENING IN ATTENDANCE OF: Dr. Colin Samson, Author and Professor of Sociology at the University of Essex, long-time Activist for Innu rights and Delegate to the United Nations Working Group on Indigenous Populations (2004)

NUTSHIMIT – on the land tells the present-day story of one of the last semi-nomadic hunting people of Canada, the Mushuau Innu of Labrador. The Mushuau Innu
themselves commissioned the film for their children and coming generations of Innu to create a visual legacy of their continuing life on the land, which they call

The Innu teenagers Becca, Sage, Todd and Pinip are staying at different hunting camps with their families. Their adventures and conversations with their grandparents
weave an intimate and profound portrait of a people whose survival, history and worldview is intertwined with the land, the animals, the plants and the spirit world.
Only between the lines, the presence of another, a threatening society becomes tangible.

Nutshimit – on the land is part of a greater documentary collaboration and filmmaker exchange with the community of Natuashish, which also created a film training initiative for young Innu.
