ATANARJUAT: THE FAST RUNNER

(2001) dir Zacharias Kunuk (Inuit) w/Natar Ungalaaq, Sylvia Ivalu, Peter-Henry Arnatsiaq, Lucy Tulugarjuk, Madeline Ivalu [170 min; Digital]
Jealousy between the two sons of an Inuit chieftain leads to a bloody conflict that ends in the death of one and their father, while the other must flee naked over the barren ice sea. Based on a 1,000-year-old legend, Director Zacharias Kunuk’s award-winning film, the first ever in the Inuktitut-language, presents a violent and brutal environment punctuated by moments of kindness in stark and breathtakingly beautiful landscape.

“A powerful, absorbing and thoroughly transporting film experience.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“From its mystical-mythical opening to the stunning finale, this is storytelling at its most primal and filmmaking at its most original.” – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel

★★★★ “An experience so engrossing it is like being buried in a new environment.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Filled with unquestionable grace and power.” – Loren King, Boston Globe

★★★★★ “This first feature ever in the Inuit language is a demanding experience. But the rewards for those who risk the journey are simply extraordinary.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
