Regards autochtones - ISUMA

Isuma, qui signifie « penser ou être attentif » en inuktitut, est la plus ancienne maison de production vidéo inuite au Canada. Fondée en 1990 par Kunuk, Cohn, Paul Apak Angilirq (1954-1998) et Pauloosie Qulitalik (1939-2012), elle a pour objectifs de préserver la culture et la langue inuites et de présenter des récits inuits à des publics inuits et non inuits partout dans le monde.



suma Distribution International Inc. (Igloolik Isuma Productions, Inc. at the time) was incorporated in January 1990 as Canada's first Inuit independent production company. Isuma is 75% Inuit-owned. The founding shareholders are Zacharias Kunuk (President), Paul Apak Angilirq (Vice-President), Pauloosie Qulitalik (Chairman), and Norman Cohn (Secretary-Treasurer). Paul Apak passed away in December 1998. Isuma’s headquarters are in Igloolik, Nunavut, with a southern office in Montreal and international representation in New York.

Isuma's mission is to produce independent community-based media – films, TV and new media - to preserve and enhance Inuit culture and language; to create jobs and economic development in Igloolik and Nunavut; and to tell authentic Inuit stories to Inuit and non-Inuit audiences worldwide.
