Short-listed for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, this fact-based drama mixes tears and laughter to tell a powerful story of cultural displacement. In 1952, during a tuberculosis epidemic, an Inuit hunter (the remarkable Ungalaaq of THE FAST RUNNER) is evacuated from the Far North to Quebec City, where he struggles to get his bearings in a strange new world of buildings and trees. Special advance screening courtesy of IFC Films. In French and Inuktitut with English subtitles.
