DISC INFO: 2-disc, 172 min feature film in Inuktitut with English/French subtitles. Other films in this series: the traditional tale Before Tommorrow and based on historical events recorded by Danish explorer Knud Rassmussen during a 1922 Arctic expedition Journals of Knud Rassmussen.


REVIEW: For those who like off-beat, foreign, or mythic films this is terrific, as is the whole trilogy. Joel often quotes the shaman Aua from Roshi Joan Halifax's book Shamanic Voices and some of those quotes appear in the film Journals of Knud Rassmussen. -- Jennifer
