This week, enjoy The Last Walk (Directors: Anna Hoover, Pipaluk K. Jørgensen, Mikisoq Lynge, Jerri Thrasher; Canada/Greenland/United States; 42 min; 2017).

The Last Walk is a series of three short films created by Indigenous filmmakers from different Arctic regions, each telling their own interpretation of a story of two sisters dealing with tragedy. While sharing a common thread, each film stands apart and speaks to the immense talent that lays north.
