Nunavut Animation Lab: Qalupalik

This animated short tells the story of Qalupalik, a part-human sea monster that lives deep in the Arctic Ocean and preys on children who do not listen to their parents or elders. That is the fate of Angutii, a young boy who refuses to help out in his family’s camp and who plays by the shoreline... until one day Qalupalik seizes him and drags him away. Angutii's father, a great hunter, must then embark on a lengthy kayak journey to try and bring his son home.

    «This is a brilliant bit of storytelling. The art lends to the story, rather than distracting from it and is very true to the Northern style of narrative. Also the ending was excellent.» — LilBakht, 14 Jui 2012

    «This is a beautifully crafted video representing a traditional tale intended to scare children into staying away from danger in much the same way that European fairy tales scare children into following their parents' safety rules. I love the way the father is shown to value his child above all else that would normally be highly treasured finds for a hunter needing to provide for his family in a harsh environment like the Arctic. Well done!» — 2teach, 26 Mar 2012

    «I think the concept of this story is cruel and I think that the comments on how passionate the father is about hunting poor innocent walruses babies and polar bears is unnecessary. Children should learn not to kill.» — Iloveanimals, 30 Oct 2011
