Nathaël and the Seal Hunt

Top of page

Just when a young boy named Nathael is about to take part in his first seal hunt, this annual event in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence becomes the focus of a world-wide controversy. This evocative short film effectively combines pastel images with pinscreen animation to show a young person's view of the traditional way of life of the Magdalen Islanders, and their perplexity at the censure of the outside world.
