The Owl and The Lemming

Owl and the Lemming

The oral history of the Inuit is filled with many folktales, legends and myths. In this traditional story, a young owl catches a lemming to eat but is outsmarted by the more vulnerable lemming. A brief meditation on why pride and arrogance are to be avoided, the film utilizes puppets, composited photographs and a set made with actual Arctic plants and lichen to create an authentic retelling of this ancient Arctic fable.
