Canada, 2014 (documentary, 76 minutes, colour, English / Inuktitut)

Film Description:
"SOL is a feature documentary that explores the mysterious death of a young Inuk man, Solomon Tapatia Uyarasuk. He is found dead in an RCMP detachment in a remote Inuit community and the locals suspect murder but the police suggest suicide. As the documentary investigates the truth to Solomon's death it sheds light on the underlying social issues of Canada's North that has resulted in this region claiming one of the highest youth suicide rates in the world. The film explores how the pain of suicide has affected the people in these small northern communities and their resilience and determination to create a better future for their people."
