“A profound, elemental, and hauntingly beautiful period drama that makes an intimate story of endurance into a metaphor for an entire culture.” —Variety
In 1840, shortly after Inuit tribes had began to encounter foreign fur traders, a boy and his grandmother return from drying fish to find everyone in their village dead from smallpox. As they look for a new community, they struggle to survive in the Arctic wilderness. This is the third work in a trilogy of Inuit dramas created by the Arnait Video Collective (Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner and The Journals of Knud Rasmussen). 2008, 35mm, in Inuktitut with English subtitles, 93 minutes.
