“In 2013, there were 45 suicides in Nunavut. Thirteen times higher than the national average.” So begins this deeply necessary film that explores the life and death of Solomon Tapatia Uyarasak, a 26-year-old Inuk actor and musician who died in police custody. As family and friends seek answers about Sol’s fate, the underlying social conditions endemic in the Canadian north are given a searing investigation.

Paired with Jack Charles V. The Crown and Huff.
