Film description

Canada's vast northern territories exist for most Canadians (80% of whom live no more than 200 km from the Canada-USA border) in the realm of the imagination. Those same territories have been literally and imaginatively colonized by Europeans and North Americans, as virtually all cinematic representations of the north have been constructed by those who live in the southern regions of Canada or are, like Robert Flaherty, from elsewhere. Until this film.

The Fast Runner is a film entirely conceived, produced, and performed by Canada's Inuit peoples. Set in the Arctic and the dawn of the first millennium, its electrifying tale of a vengeful rivalry between two brothers, The Strong One and The Fast Runner, over the love of a woman is Shakespearean in scope, and is articulated and enacted in the language of its people and place. The prodigious imagination of the north itself has, with this award-winning and groundbreaking Camera d'Or winner, spoken of its experience and its culture in a manner that stunned cinema audiences around the world with its dramatic power and impressive combination of ancient storytelling traditions with modern moving image technology.
