25-year-old Mosha Michael made an assured directorial debut with this seven-minute short, a relaxed narration-free depiction of an Inuk seal hunt. Having participated in a 1974 Super 8 workshop in Iqaluit (formerly known as Frobisher / Frobisher Bay), Michael shot and edited the film himself. His voice can be heard on the appealing guitar-based soundtrack, singing in Inuktitut. Released in 1975, Natsik Hunting is believed to be Canada’s first Inuk-directed film.
