The GrizzliesWed 20 Nov 17:15—20:00
The Embassy of Canada to Sweden, Arcum – Arctic Research Center, Vaartoe – Sami Research Center and Västerbottens museum are delighted to invite you to an exclusive screening of Canadian movie The Grizzlies.
The film is based on the inspiring true story of the youth of Kugluktuk, Nunavut (Canada) – who were transformed by the power of sport, family, tradition, and community, and in turn, transformed their town with the highest suicide rate in all of North America into a model of hope and youth-led resilience.
