Atanarjuat - The Fast Runner

Atanarjuat - Il corridore veloce
by Zacharias Kunuk Fiction Canada 2001 167'

Evil takes the form of an outsider witchdoctor who manages to sow discord in a nomad Inuit community, destroying its social and spiritual harmony. The film, Camera d'or in Cannes Festival 2001, draws on an ancient Inuit legend, handed down from generation to generation, that teaches the young the difference between the common good and personal advantage. Although not a documentary per se, the film illustrates traditional Inuit life, its customs and clothing, before Christianization.<%YOUTUBE=CUInNnWZLGU%>
