Canada’s Top Ten: Maliglutit (Searchers)

Thu, Mar 2 / 7 pm
Sat, Mar 4 / 3 pm & 7 pm
Sun, Mar 5 / 7 pm
Directed by Zacharias Kunuk
2016, Canada, 93 min
Inuktitut with English subtitles

March 4 & 5, 7 pm screenings introduced by Zacharias Kunuk and Producer/Cinematographer Jonathan Frantz.

Fifteen years ago, Inuk filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk won the prestigious Cannes award for Best First Feature for his epic film Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner. Kunuk returns ten years later with collaborator Natar Ungalaaq and has used the plot of John Ford’s 1956 western The Searchers as inspiration for a very different kind of revenge story. An Inuk man and his band of followers (maliglutit) set out across the barren Arctic in search of the marauders who have ransacked his home and kidnapped his wife. As their quest leads to further violence, the line between just and unjust becomes dangerously blurred.

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival – Now in its 16th year, Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival highlights the best features, shorts, and student shorts from across the country. The breadth of programming selected by  filmmakers, programmers, critics, and industry professionals represents the creative strength of the country’s best cinema.

An all-Inuit cast and Inuktitut dialogue....Maliglutit draws on the power of the natural elements, like the landscape and sunlight, to present a part of the world that rarely appears on film….visionary. - Pat Mullen, Cinemablographer
