Tony (doc in development)

When Tony Kalluk returned to his home community of Clyde River three years ago, many townspeople feared the worst. In the more than twenty years that he had been gone, Tony had gained the reputation as one of Nunavut’s most hardened and violent criminals, involved in gangs and drugs. But word was that he had reformed, and that he was coming home to begin a new life.

Tony Kalluk’s unfinished life history lays bare the dark underbelly of Nunavut itself, in a way that statistics, government reports and media accounts cannot match. At the same time it is riveting raw material for a film, be it a fictionalized drama or a documentary where Tony himself is front and centre. It could even be a mixture, with Tony and other real-life characters re-enacting episodes from the past while also taking us into their lives today.
