Manasie Akpaliapik

Short Doc Contest

Renowned Inuk artist Manasie Akpaliapik comes from a family of carvers in Arctic Bay, Nunavut. When he was nine, he sold his first carving to the Hudson's Bay Company for a box of Carnation milk and a toy gun. Today his works are in art gallery collections across Canada. This film by Shelby Lisk, winner of TVO's 2019 Short Short Doc Award, explores how Akpaliapik shares his culture and relationship to the land through his carvings.
