"Daisa" is an intimate photo essay featuring Daisa Allurut, an Inuk woman from Arctic Bay, Nunavut, trying to rebuild her life, far from home, in Ottawa. Every day she struggles to find a job, keep an apartment and deal with the fact that her children now live with foster parents. Daisa tells us about her personal fight against poverty and alcohol, how her life unravelled once she moved away from home, how it feels to be an Inuit person living in the nation's capital. Director Sonia Bolieau is a bilingual, award winning Mohawk director and writer who recently was awarded the Diversity Award at Le Gala des Prix Gémeaux for her documentary "Last Call Indian".
