MALIGLUTIT

Screening

03/04/2017 9:00 pm

Set upon the sprawling tundra of the Canadian Arctic, this entrancing new work from visionary filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk—whose Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner was recently voted the greatest Canadian film of all time—tracks a search led by an Inuk man for the marauders who pillaged his home and kidnapped his wife.
60 years after John Ford’s iconic The Searchers, Kunuk and his collaborators have crafted a companion piece that is both homage and a critique, a searing mediation on vengeance and the colonialist doctrine lodged deep in the heart of the western. Maliglutit is an astonishing spectacle, a thrilling story, an iconoclastic reassessment of genre, and a window into a world seldom seen at the movies.
