Attutauniujuk Nunami / Lament for the Land Documentary

Attutauniujuk Nunami/Lament for the Land originated out of a community-based, community-led initiative to examine connections between climate change and Inuit mental health in Nunatsiavut (the Inuit Mental Health and Adaptation to Climate Change project). It represents a joint partnership of the five Inuit communities of Nunatsiavut, with coordination in each of the five regions provided by a local research coordinator. A total of 120 interviews conducted with community members and health professionals resulted in a film that highlights the voices of Inuit in Nunatsiavut as they describe the impacts of climate on mental health, and associated adaptations. Attutauniujuk Nunami/Lament for the Land highlights the ways in which people and place are intimately connected, and the grief and sadness, as well as the hope and strength that emerge in times of change.
