Director Dennis Allen sets off across the flat, snow-covered expanse on his skidoo.A new documentary series, currently under production for Canada’s Aboriginal People’s Television Network, APTN, chronicles the activities of the little known Canadian Ranger Patrol Group 1 as they assert Canada’s sovereignty over the country’s Arctic region. The series is being filmed on the hauntingly beautiful barren landscape of Canada’s northern Nunavut territory. We find out more about the Rangers from two of the documentary series’ directors: Dennis Allen, the Field Director, and Steph Weimar, one of two directors of photography. They spoke to The Link’s host, Mark Montgomery, from Taloyoak, on Boothia Bay, the northernmost settlement on mainland Canada.
