Q&A with:
Marie-Helene Cousineau

Women of the Video Work­shop reen­act a tra­di­tion­al wom­en’s activ­i­ty: the use of the qulliq. The qulliq is the seal oil lamp and stove of the old days, the only source of light and warmth. The women tell the story in words and songs as they install the qulliq in their igloo.
