Movie Info

"Atanarjuat, The Fast Runner" is an epic film made by and about the Inuit peoples of the Canadian arctic, telling a story of a crime that ruptures the trust within a closely knit group, and how justice is achieved and healing begins. Director Zacharias Kunuk and his writer, Paul Apak Angilin, collected oral versions of an Inuit legend from several elders, collated them into a story, submitted the story to the elders for suggestions and then filmed it as a collaborative expression.

    Unlike Margaret Atwood, I wouldn't call it the greatest Canadian film ever made but it is so unique in terms of its depictions of not only the lives of the Innuit..but a study of their ancient cultural belief system. A truly remarkable film.
