The Living Stone
Directed by John Feeney - 1958.
This documentary shows the inspiration behind Inuit sculpture. The Inuit
approach to the work is to release the image the artist sees imprisoned
in the rough stone. The film centres on an old legend about the carving
of the image of a sea spirit to bring food to a hungry camp.
Produced by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
