The crew, lead by Toronto-based actor-director Miranda de Pencier, has been filming various scenes in the movie about the Kugluktuk Grizzlies athletic club for nearly 30 days. The crew plans to wrap up their northern portion of the shoot on June 1. "The kids have been extraordinary," de Pencier said May 30, as she directed the shoot in a down parka and blue sealskin mittens. She's talking about all the young people recruited as extras and members of the Grizzlies lacrosse team. "There have been many, many moments that have awed me and inspired me. They have delivered a performance that will break hearts and build joy." Weather in Iqaluit cooperated the entire time and filming progressed without a hitch, she said. The film is a co-production between Kugluktuk native Stacey Aglok MacDonald and Iqaluit's Alethea Arnaquq-Baril. See more photos on our Facebook page. (PHOTO BY LISA GREGOIRE)
