A heart-warming saga from the deep-frozen Far NorthLars is the only teenager in Niaqornat, a remote village in Greenland with more dogs that people. In a community of hunters, he doesn't want to hunt, but what else is there?
This is Sarah Gavron's (Brick Lane) first foray into documentary, a film that gives beautiful insight into a tiny village that didn’t even have electricity until 1988. Focusing on the inhabitants such as Karl the Hunter who refuses to acknowledge Lars as his son; Ilannguaq the Outsider; and Annie the Elder who was schooled in the ways of the Shamen, the film depicts the challenges facing rural communities and the uncertainties surrounding their economic future. A fragile world with hearty inhabitants, the film has earned rave reviews worldwide.
