Directors Staffan Julen and his sister Ilva traveled among the Inuit of the Arctic Circle and its environs to record their customs and daily lives on film. In this fascinating documentary, the Inuit are shown hunting and fishing, and one of the primary concerns about their livelihood is brought forward. If oil tankers are allowed to travel freely through their waters, then the sea animals that provide almost the only food the Inuit consume will disappear. Whales, seals, and other water animals are sound-sensitive and will leave if the great tankers disturb their home grounds. This would dangerously diminish the food supply for the Inuit whose culture and oral history are also strongly comprised of hunting and fishing lore.
