“I do not draw simply the surface of the landscape. I feel I am capturing the breath and soul of the earth.” 

Ghost Noise leads the viewer into the magical world of third generation Inuit artist, Shuvinai Ashoona. The film mirrors the poetry found within Ashoona’s meticulously detailed drawings that deftly reflect personal experience, psychological perception, Inuit mythology and the arctic landscape. As Ashoona states, “Everything’s a ghost noise… It’s good to listen to them but it’s not good to learn it.”
