Jules Dion, Fifty Years Below Zero (english version)
The biography of Jules Dion, Missionary Oblate of Mary Immaculate, relates the story of a life that spans over half a century among the Inuit of Nunavik.
Fifty Years Below Zero puts us directly in contact with the daily life of the Inuit, their culture, their way of thinking and their perception of the world.
During the last fifty years, the Inuit have undergone significant changes due to a sedentary lifestyle. The biography of this Belgian priest recalls some of these events and draws a gripping picture of the challenges that the indigenous peoples of the Arctic region have had to overcome daily.
