An epic tragedy set in and around Igloolik in the 1920s, as the last great Inuit shaman and his beautiful and headstrong daughter struggle to survive the sweep of civilization that brought Christianity and commerce to the arctic and irrevocably changed Inuit life. Witnesses to their story are Danish ethnographer and explorer Knud Rasmussen and his traveling companions Therkel Mathiassen and Peter Freuchen.

Critic Reviews for The Journals of Knud Rasmussen
While the Europeans are compelled to share some of their own songs, beliefs and personal history, it's the telling of the Inuit stories that compels much of the movie.

Not every admirer of the first film will enjoy it, but it values its subjects too much to mold their rhythms to an outsider's attention span.
