Qausuittuq, Directed by Min Bae (Canada) - Qausuittuq: “The place where the sun doesn’t rise.” Experience the visuality of Qausuittuq, a small settlement in the remote Northern Canadian Inuit Hamlet of Resolute Bay, Nunavut. Qausuittuq explores the parallels between humans' and nature's influences on the northern landscape, emphasizing the inevitable passage of time and the impact of climate fluctuation. The industrialization of Qausuittuq disrupts the once peaceful and natural land that now contains abandoned machinery, melting polar ice caps floating on the crystal blue-violet sea, and white silent nights only are broken by the cries of local foxes. "Immerse yourself within an experience of isolation and loneliness from a place you never been before. Wasted warehouses, empty oil tanks, broken industrial machinery, and forgotten sunsets: "Qausuittuq" showcases the desertion of a North Pole settlement. As a filmmaker and cinematographer, I wanted to express the North Pole's uncanny coexistence of nature and humankind. I exhibit the evolution and digression of human creation, consumption, and inevitable abandonment of the "place with no dawn." - Min Bae"
