Anerca is from the Inuit language and means the soul, the breath of life. The plan is to produce a narrative film about the people living in the arctic, their world and its situation as it is right now. The film progresses through the power of music, dance, performance and a depiction of everyday life. Through maintaining a daily subsistence, ordinary life is the source for music and other kinds of self-expression. It is life itself breathing. The cultures depicted in the film are the Chukchi, Alaskan and Canadian Inuit, the Sayisi Dene people of Canada, Greenlanders, Sámi, Nenets, Selkups and Nganasans.
