Two new documentaries will have their world premieres at the 11th annual imgaineNATIVE Festival in Toronto. Organizers announced on Wednesday that director Zacharias Kunuk (Atanarjuat – The Fast Runner) will present Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change, a documentary about the impact of the changing environment from the perspective of the Inuit. The film will stream simultaneously online during its theatrical screening via Isuma.tv and will be follwed by a live and virtual Q&A with the director. The other major doc in the program is Canadian documentarian Alanis Obomsawin’s When All the Leaves Are Gone, a film about a First Nations girl facing hardships of growing up away from home. The imagineNATIVE Festival takes place Oct. 20-24 in Toronto. For more info visit www.imagineNATIVE.org.
