Directed by Alan Zweig
2017, Canada, 105 min

Alan Zweig, the legendary director of Vinyl, When Jews Were Funny and Hurt has created his masterpiece. As we journey to the northern community of Iqualit, Alan and his small crew meet a fiercely independent Inuit people who have suffered from the harsh effects of residential schools and bureaucratic policies. Zweig, accompanied by his sidekick Tatanniq Idlout (aka Inuit rock musician Lucie Idlout), manages with his self-deprecating style to capture interviews of great honesty and sorrow. These, put together with John Price’s stunning photographic vistas of the north, make this one of the finest Canadian documentaries of the year.

 

Reviews

It takes your breath away. There are moments, especially towards the end, of such tenderness. There is a House Here is a journey, an exploration of deep understanding. The world will be a better place because of it.
