Qooqu - Lille fugl

Qooqu - Lille fugl, little bird

2017, short film 14:23 min.

Qooqu - Little bird, is a visually poetic journey to the artist's childhood village Aappilattoq in South Greenland. We meet danish-Greenlandic John Angajoq Nattoralissuaq, who talks about his connection to ancestors, tradition and the world of Spirit. Here life and death, along with the relationship between nature, human and animal are completely interconnected.

Based on the artist's biographical background, she seeks to look deeper into a complex discussion about the relationship between identity, ethnicity and cultural heritage. A discussion that may well arise in imperialist interests in early colonialism, but which can also be seen in the light of a geopolitical situation today.
