Okpik’s Dream launches production blog

We've launched the production blog and our social media channels for  Okpik's Dream in conjunction with a film shoot covering the 2014 edition of the Ivakkak long-distance dogsled race.

A feature-length cinéma vérité documentary written and directed by Laura Rietveld, Okpik's Dream takes the viewer into the modern Inuit world. Shot over the course of a year, in English and Inuktitut, we follow Harry Okpik, a champion amputee dog musher through the Arctic seasons as he trains his dogs and recounts the momentous events in his life. We learn how he struggled to overcome a series of heart wrenching misfortunes that lead to the loss of his childhood, and later, the loss of his leg. Despite this, every year Harry participates in the Ivakkak, a grueling 600 km Inuit dog sled race across Arctic Quebec

Follow along at the following links, and join the adventure!
