His assignment: get a nomadic Inuit band led by elder Noah Piugattuk to leave their homeland and live with other Inuit in settlement housing. Originally conceived as a video installation, this feature film from the Isuma collective (led by director Zacharias Kunuk and screenwriter/cinematographer Norman Cohn) is a scathing condemnation of Canadian colonialism. Important chronicle of a calamitous incident that tenderly points up the rugged tenacity of the Inuit in the face of persistent adversity.Q&A with the cast and crewIn collaboration with Musée McCord.
