March 2020: going back to Grise Fiord

SMainGriseFiordNov2018UPDATE: This trip has been postponed. Be safe, Nunavummuit.

Whilst COVID-19 has created uncertainty, I am packing and readying to head back to Grise Fiord to see the people who helped me when I was there in 2018. I will show them the film I have made on my experience of following Jenny Gilbertson to and around Grise Fiord. After listening to their responses and thinking with their thoughts I will make the necessary changes so they are at ease with how they and their community is represented.

I will be there for just under three weeks so I will have a bit of time to experience Grise Fiord in Early Spring, do some more filming and recording and enjoy the company of friends. Thereafter I will return to Scotland to do the finishing edit, complete my written thesis and submit.

It turns out this was the first ever public screening of the film in Grise Fiord.
