Film Screening: Maliglutit (Searchers)

Inspired by John Ford’s, The Searchers, Maliglutit is a story about a man who embarks on a perilous mission across the tundra in search of his kidnapped wife and daughter. In telling this western classic from an indigenous perspective, directors Zacharias Kunuk and Natar Ungalaaq, craft a stirring epic that explores community, revenge, and the meaning of justice. This film includes a score by award-winning Inuit throat singer, Tanya Tagaq.
