One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk

Directed by Zacharias Kunuk
CANADA | subtitled
112 minutes

One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk hinges on a pivotal 1961 encounter in north Baffin Island, between the title character, other community leaders, and a government emissary who has come relocate the nomadic hunters to permanent settlements and send their children to school. The real Noah Piugattuk was born in 1900 and lived to be 96 years old, during which time he saw the decline of traditional practices that had existed for thousands of years. In this one day, and this fateful meeting, filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk (Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner) masterfully condenses much of Inuit-settler relations, and the emotional and historical layers make it one of his finest works.
