MALIGLUTIT
2016, 94 min, Canada, Dir: Zacharias Kunuk

Cannes Golden Camera-winning (for 2001’s THE FAST RUNNER) director Zacharias Kunuk creates an unforgettable reworking of John Ford’s signature 1956 Western by transporting its intense tale of abduction and revenge from the dusty American West to the vast snowy vistas of the Canadian Arctic. Kuanana (Benjamin Kunuk) returns from a successful caribou hunt to a catastrophic scene - in his absence, someone has attacked his igloo, his wife and daughter have been taken away, and the remainder of the family has been slaughtered. Guided by the spirit helper of his father, a loon named Kallulik, Kuanana sets out across the white, seemingly infinite Arctic landscapes to get his wife and daughter back and to take revenge on those who have committed these atrocities.


In Inuktitut with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
