How You Watched the Season 5 Qanurli? Premiere, in Tweets, Posts, and Photos


Last night, I curled up on the couch with my family to watch the Season 5 Qanurli? Premiere on APTN. It's been almost a year since we started working on the Inuktut comedy show's latest installment, for which I am Production Manager and Unit Publicist; watching the first two episodes, it felt like just yesterday.

To celebrate the season - the first one made independently by the now one-year old Qanukiaq Studios - the team created a hashtag and contest.

Based on your tweets and posts, here's what was being said and done during the #QanurliPremiere last night!

Inuktitut Lessons

As I've written before, language preservation is so important in Nunavut and other Inuit communities, and Qanurli? is part of the fight for its survival. Also, translating English words literally into another language is a common pastime of any other-language speaker (I do it all the time with my brother in Bangla), precisely because it is so simply and stupidly funny (lol at Justin Napaaqtuq [tree] Tasi [lake]).
