Ever Deadly

This is the weirdest title for a thrilling film about a marvelous artist, Tanya Tagaq, a contemporary Inuk throat singer from Nunavut who uses punk rock and electronic music in her concerts. Opening with an astonishing throat duet by Tagaq and Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, the film segues into a biography of Tagaq, a celebration of the northern landscape and its way of life, a critical look at Canada’s colonial history, and footage of Tagaq’s remarkable performances all accompanied by animation from fellow Inuit artists.
