The viewing will be followed by a filmmakers Q and A, and a one-of-a-kind performance from AKU-MATU AKU-Matu, is the stage persona of Iñupiaq rap, hip-hop and performance artist Allison Akootchook Warden. Warden has performed all over the world, engaging her audiences with stories and themes of the Iñupiaq, paying homage to traditions and addressing contemporary issues.
