Fandoms: Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner (2001)
29 Apr 2020
Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner was the first Inuit film to appear in cinemas. It's a visually stunning rendition of the story of two brothers, Amaqjuaq and Atanarjuat, who challenge the power of an evil shamen in their small community. Tradition and taboo are carefully negotiated, within and without the filmatic structure: Atanarjuat was filmed on location with an Inuit cast and crew, after extensive consultation with community elders.
