Tusarnituuq now out on DVD!

Tusarnituuq! Nagano in the Land of the Inuit, a film by Félix Lajeunesse, is now available on DVD through the on-line store of Filmoption International.

In September 2008 the acclaimed Orchestre symphonique de Montreal (OSM) embarked on its first ever tour of the Canadian Arctic. Led by internationally celebrated maestro Kent Nagano, the OSM invited three Inuit performers to collaborate with them. No surprise, then, that the program featured a concert of music from the classical repertoire with a distinctly Inuit twist: Stravinsky’s Histoire du soldat narrated in Inuktitut, the language of the Inuit people, and a new work inspired by Inuit throatsinging from Canadian composer Alexina Louie. Offering viewers intimate access to Maestro Nagano, the artists, and the remote Inuit communities they visit, this documentary captures an extraordinary meeting of two worlds through music.
