“For the heat of summer, the Crandell proposes a very special film — a gentle comedy of cultural misunderstandings set on an Arctic ice floe. Zacharias Kunuk, the maker of Canada’s first and most celebrated Inuit feature, Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner, returns with his account of a fabled meeting between a government official and a local elder and hunter, Noah Piugattuk, wherein the bureaucrat tries to persuade Piugattuk to give up his nomadic ways for a settled civilized life in a new town where children can go to school. Originally conceived for Venice’s Art Biennale, Kunuk’s film is rueful, wise, moving and something completely different.” — Laurence Kardish, co-artistic director, FilmColumbia
