Zacharias Kunuk's extraordinary Inuit epic set in the Artic at the dawn of the first millennium has returned to the ICA screen many times by popular demand. Preserved and passed down orally for generations, the ancient story of Atanarjuat is a cautionary tale about the dangers of setting personal desires against communal needs. From this, Kunuk has woven a compelling drama, culturally specific and universally accessible.
