The thought of it, and to go caribou hunting and see all those things again, that's dreams. It's kind of a magic in its own way.

In the startling collapse of the once massive George River Caribou Herd—and a subsequent total hunting ban—Inuit in Labrador, Canada, were abruptly confronted with a new reality: life without a fundamental source of food, culture, and wellbeing. Through Inuit voices, HERD tells the story of the social, emotional, and cultural disruptions from cascading ecological change by putting an essential human face to the caribou declines. The film, which was developed over four years of intimate collaboration between filmmakers and communities, cinematically explores an array of lived experiences, from youth to Elders and hunters to cooks, to ensure that the stories of those living on the frontlines of this conservation crisis are HERD.

It’s not just food and it’s not just fur for clothing and all of that, but it’s just a sense of home.
