Qallunaat! Why White People Are Funny is a 2006 satirical documentary film directed by Mark Sandiford and Zebedee Nungak. The documentary-style film reverses the roles between White Canadians and the Inuit of Northern Canada, highlighting the nature of the treatment of the Inuit by White Canadian society. Featuring the Qallunaat Studies Institute (QSI) and its Qallunologists, who study Qallunaat (White Canadians) in often humorous ways, the institution satirizes historical treatment of the Inuit by social scientists. A special feature featuring the QSI holding a conference in the Inuktitut language is paired with the film titled Qallunaanik Piusiqsiuriniq. The film won the 2007 Yorkton Film Award's Golden Sheaf Award for Best Indigenous Production, as well as the 2008 Gemini Award's Canada Award. ()

About Qallunaat!

Qallunaat! Why White People are Funny is an irreverent look at Western Civilization through Inuit eyes. Inspired by the satirical essays of Zebedee Nungak, the film turns the tables on generations of anthropologists, teachers, adventurers and administrators who went North to pursue their Arctic Dreams. Now it’s their turn to be poked, prodded, examined and explained. A new generation of Inuit is ready to take on the Qallunaat at their own game. Grounded in their own traditions but educated in the South, they have a unique perspective on the culture that has come to dominate the planet. And they are not afraid to speak their minds.
