Inspired by conversations with Inuit human rights activist Miqqusaaq, the dramatic short film Throat Song takes place in the icy landscape of Iqaluit, Nunvaut, a small town in the Canadian Arctic. Ippik (Ippiksaut Friesen), a young Inuk woman, is silently suffering from the pains of an abusive relationship. Lost in a community that’s been tragically separated from its past, Ippik, through a job with the Department of Justice, begins to connect with other victims of violence in her community, and seeks to reclaim her voice.
