They will be showing a 28-minute film called If Weather Permits at 1:30pm. Elisapie Isaac, a young, city-based Inuit filmmaker returns to her roots, the village of Kangirsujuaq in Nunavik. Here, she ponders the relationship between the Inuit past and the future in today’s world. In interviews with her extraordinary grandfather and with young people of the community, she finds more questions than answers. To bridge the growing gap between the young and the old, she lets Naalak, an elder, and Danny, a young policeman from Kangirsujuaq, tell us what they think. Isaac also speaks to her grandfather, now dead, and confides in him her hopes and fears.

Head over to the Heard Museum on Monday, June 8 at 1:30pm for the second Movie Mondays event of the summer.
The museum is showing a 52-minute film called The Salmon Forest. On Canada’s Pacific coast, winding from the north end of Vancouver Island to the Alaskan border, is more than 400 kilometers of forested inlets and islands. This is the largest tract of intact temperate rainforest on Earth. Here, millions of spawning salmon that support dense concentrations of forest life, including grizzly bears, black bears, bald eagles, seals, otters, gulls and the Gitga’at First Nation, return every year. Bathed in mist and rain year-round, this is one of the most biologically diverse and lush places on the planet.
Movie Mondays are back to the Heard Museum this summer by popular demand.
The first movie, Totem: The Return of the G’psgolox Pole, will show on June 1 at 1:30pm. In 1929, a 9-meter-high totem pole was stolen from the Haisla people’s village in northwestern British Columbia. The totem pole was discovered in 1991 in Stockholm, Sweden. The 70-minute film, released in 2003, follows the journey of the Haisla to reclaim their traditional mortuary pole.
