We are thinking of Canada as a possible filming location as Inuit history is linked to Quebec and the Labrador peninsula. Other possible locations are Iceland or Greenland.
This extreme frozen landscape is the landscape that Avatâra is less familiar with which is why we are still researching the most appropriate location in which to shoot the film.
The research behind I AM UKI
We have developed a documentation process about the fishing tradition of Inuits. Since in the Inuit culture it was the children and women who mostly used to go fishing, it is our intention to take the fishing Inuit traditions as a starting point to give visibility to the the Inuit culture.
