Storyline

This classic short film shows how to make an igloo using only snow and a knife. Two Inuit men in Canada's Far North choose the site, cut and place snow blocks and create an entrance--a shelter completed in one-and-a-half hours. The commentary explains that the interior warmth and the wind outside cement the snow blocks firmly together. As the short winter day darkens, the two builders move their caribou sleeping robes and extra skins indoors, confident of spending a snug night in the midst of the Arctic cold. /// Court métrage documentaire sur la construction des igloos. Il ne faut pas plus d'une heure et demie aux Inuits pour construire leurs « maisons de neige ». Cette architecture n'en obéit pas moins à des règles précises quant au choix du site, à la taille et à l'assemblage des blocs de neige et à la ventilation.
