Our latest video shows Incredible old footage of the Inuit, Iñupiat and Yupik tribes of Alaska, Northern Canada and Greenland.
It also features an all new soundtrack specially created for the video by Inuit Chill, a chill out music artist specialising in world music.
Filming in the Arctic
In the early twentieth century technology had advanced to make film cameras more accessible, and several explorers saw the opportunity to bring the stunning beauty and vastness of the Arctic to the eyes of the world.
These pioneers set out on expeditions into the harsh and remote Arctic regions, armed with their film cameras and a pioneering spirit.
Their aim was to capture footage of the unique landscape, people and culture of the area.
The films they made give us a window into a world that was unknown and unseen. Western and European audiences could experience the Arctic in a way that was previously impossible.
The soundtrack for this video is by Chillout artist Inuit Chill, and features 12 new tracks. It’s also available to stream and purchase on all streaming platforms.
