Lucy Tu­lu­gar­juk

Inuit Art Quarterly - - COLLECTING GUIDE - – Zacharias Kunuk

I met Lucy Tu­lu­gar­juk a while ago. She played the bad wife in Ata­nar­juat (2001), so she and I worked to­gether on this film. She was also my first as­sis­tant on my film The Jour­nals of Knud Ras­mussen, in fall 2006. Lucy will be di­rect­ing her first film this sum­mer; she was asked by Marie-Hélèn Cousineau to be the di­rec­tor. This will be a chil­dren’s fea­ture film about two young girls who meet and be­come friends. It is about hav­ing an op­por­tu­nity to see and ex­pe­ri­ence Inuit cul­ture through these two girls. There are quite a few Inuit artists that I re­ally like out there—I like all of them—but Lucy is re­ally tal­ented, and I would like to nom­i­nate her.
