Across Arctic Ungava

Top of page

The record of an expedition by four scientists and their Indigenous guides into the unmapped wilderness of the Ungava Peninsula. Crossing this territory in large canoes, they collect samples of Arctic flora and rocks at each stop, take readings of soil temperature, and record the correct bearings for rivers and lakes en route. The keen excitement of opening a new chapter in Canadian exploration is evident throughout the film.
