Atanarjuat (The Fast Runner)

Centuries ago, in the Arctic territory, a vengeful shaman summons an "evil spirit" to sow discord, resulting in the death of the local tribal chief. Years later, the curse continues to haunt the native people when the malevolent son of the dead chief wishes to wed a young village girl. Unfortunately, she's in love with the good-natured title character, resulting in much conflict and tragedy. A stark and stunning look into a very different culture with almost Shakespearian overtones. One of this year's best. In Inuktitut with English subtitles. 172 minutes
