Lift off at the Inupiat Festival
Frozen Planet were in Barrow, Alaska at the time of their annual Spring whaling festival, which culminates in the Nalukataq, or blanket toss.
In this celebration, members of the community get thrown into the air from the top of a 'blanket' formed from the skin of one of the whaling boats. Director Elizabeth got to have a go.
