From Our Hearts to Yours  This theme delves into the cultural and artistic expressions of  Inuit stone sculptors, Haida wood carvers and a Mi’kmaq painter. Each film focuses on the process of artistic creation rather than the product, in keeping with the teaching of Elders, who stress the importance of the journey rather than the destination.
