ZACHARIAS KUNUK
Canada, 2016
94 minutes, Color
Official website

Taking John Ford's classic western as a touchstone, filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk (Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner) forges a spectacular revenge saga set in the arctic shortly before World War I. When an Inuk man, Kuanana, returns from a hunt, he discovers that a rival has raided his igloo, kidnapped his wife and daughter, and slaughtered the rest of his family. Kuanana sets off in pursuit, guided by the spirit loon. Kunuk fashions a film that draws from both classic Hollywood and Inuk storytelling traditions; it's ethnographic and mythic, dazzling and spiritual. There are exciting action sequences here—the vivid icy exteriors are as stunning as Ford's Monument Valley—but also low-light sequences inside igloos that are thrillingly strange and mysterious. With a tale as timeless as the landscape in which it is set, Canada's foremost Inuk filmmaker has provided us with another classic.—Various sources
