Tusarnituuq! Nagano in The Land of The Inuit

In September 2008, Canada's most prestigious orchestra, the Montreal
Symphony Orchestra, embarked on its first ever tour of the Canadian

program featured a concert of music from the classical repertoire,
including Stravinksy's Histoire du soldat narrated in Inuktitut, the
language of the Inuit people, and a new work inspired by Inuit throat
singing from Canadian composer Alexina Louie. Offering intimate access to
Maestro Nagano, the artists, and the remote Inuit communities they visit,
this documentary captures an extraordinary meeting of two worlds through
