ISUMA: One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk

The 13th Kaunas Biennial “Once Upon Another Time… gyveno jie jau kitaip” presents the special film programme by ISUMA (CA).

January 23 17.30–19.30
One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk
Drama • 1h 52m • 2019

In April 1961, John Kennedy is American’s new President, the Cold War heats up in Berlin, and nuclear bombers are deployed from bases in arctic Canada. In Kapuivik, north Baffin Island, Noah Piugattuk’s nomadic Inuit band live and hunt by dog team as hi ancestors did when he was born in 1900. When the white man known as Boss arrives at Piugattuk’s hunting camp, what appears as a chance meeting soon opens up the prospect of momentous change. Boss is an agent of the government, assigned to get Piugattuk to move his band to settlement housing and send his children to school so they can get jobs and make money. But Kapuivik is Piugattuk’s homeland. He takes no part in the Canadian experience – and cannot imagine what his children would do with money. (Inuktitut/English).
