Sol

Solomon Tapatia Uyarasuk was a charismatic young Inuk and an amateur acrobat, musician and poet, who in recent years had become a rising star in the world of circus arts. A member of troupe Artcirq (Arctic Circus), Sol traveled around the world performing in Mali, Mexico, across Canada and in France. His upbringing, however, was unusual. Sol was raised by his grandmother, Rachel Uyarasuk, who lived a nomadic lifestyle on the territories of Baffin Island in Canada. The values imparted to Solomon, raised in the arts and traditional Inuit culture by his grandmother, deeply influenced him. SOL is a moving tribute to Solomon, who was found dead in the Igloolik police station in 2012 at the age of 26. The locals suspect murder but the police suggest suicide. Solomon
