While studies of minority cultures have had a place in academia for many years, it’s rare that we have a good look at what people of different cultures and ethnicities think about white people and their culture traditions. In his documentary, Mark Sandiford, along with Inuit writer and satirist Zebedee Nungak, look at exactly this topic, exploring the uniqueness and eccentricities of the “white” way of life. “Qallunaat! Why White People are Funny” will be shown at North House as part of the Inuit Premiere this Friday, March 18th at 8 pm. Jana Berka of WTIP spoke with Mark by phone on Monday, March 14 on the AM Community Calendar program about the film and some of the things that make western culture, well, funny.
