Biography

Gabriel Nuraki Koperqualuk is an emerging filmmaker and artist living in Montreal, QC. Growing up in Montreal as an urban Inuk has greatly influenced his work and his subject matter on Inuit heritage and reconnection. Cultivating a lifelong interest in drawing and studying graphic design led to Koperqualuk’s artistic focus on using technology to manipulate art. He is also an emerging filmmaker and his documentary film "The 5th Region" (2018) had its world premiere at the imagineNATIVE Film Festival in Toronto, ON in 2018.View Long Biography and Citations
