Edward Folger was a filmmaker, nomad, pioneer, mentor, father, and friend. A technologically inquisitive artist, his experimentations with film, video and computers were tempered by a soul steeped in poetry, philosophy and music. His sudden and premature passing in November 2013 left a hole in the fabric of our community. Join us in paying tribute to Ed’s artistic legacy and remarkable spirit as we screen his groundbreaking 1977 feature film Nanook Taxi, the first dramatic feature made in Northern Canada featuring an Inuk cast. Nanook Taxi will be preceded by a compilation of videotaped interviews with Ed and a selection of his short films including The River of Life and Lessons in Democracy.
