When Daily Xtra covered Iqaluit, Nunavut’s first Pride in 2014, the article sparked an interest in filmmaker Mark Kenneth Woods, who decided to find out more.

The resulting documentary, Two Soft Things, Two Hard Things, looks at Inuit LGBT people and their lives in Canada’s North, as they uncover and reconnect with their forgotten place in their community.

“Colonization and Christian missions and whatnot have sort of hidden that, or pushed it aside or erased it, so it’s about uncovering all of that,” Woods says.
