Curator’s Pick: One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk (Zacharias Kunuk, 2019)

The latest from filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk (best known for his film Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner, the first feature made entirely in Inuktitut), this tragicomedy of Inuit-settler relationships dramatizes a true story of an Inuk hunter who was approached by a government agent to give up his traditional lifestyle and assimilate into a modern settlement. Kunuk’s slow-burning cinema inspires deeper observation of social distancing, and Piugattuk highlights the humor of communication failure and takes notice of what’s at stake when we too quickly assimilate to an assumed normalcy. The film premiered at the Canadian pavilion in the 58th Venice Biennale.
