Sedna, Empress of the Sea
Animated Feature Film, Youth
SEDNA, EMPRESS OF THE SEA is an animated, action-adventure, feature film about one of the most compelling indigenous legends of all time. It’s the story of Sedna, a courageous young Inuit girl, who, kidnapped by an evil raven escapes by kayak only to end up at the bottom of the sea where she magically transforms into a mermaid/Empress of the Sea. Though a light-hearted musical, the film uses metaphors and allegory to introduce children to the concept of residential schools and their impact on Indigenous children and families (Family entertainment, 85 minutes, available in English, French and Inuktitut).
