Film description

Before Tomorrow is a beautifully photographed tale of a powerful and resolute Inuit woman and her grandson, based on the novel Før Morgendagen by Jørn Riel. Ningiuq and her best friend Kutuujuk are elders in an Inuit family in the mid-nineteenth century. They volunteer to travel to a remote island away from wolves and other dangers to dry the season's bountiful fish catch. Ningiuq, her grandson Maniq and Kutuujuk go away together and begin their work. As time passes, Kutuujuk faces the end of her life. Ningiuq, meanwhile, senses that all is not well at home, as rumours of Europeans arriving on their land were circulating before they embarked on their journey. When no one comes for them, she and Maniq decide to head home by on their own.

Before Tomorrow is the debut feature from directors Marie-Hélène Cousineau and Madeline Piujuq Ivalu. Sensitive and formally assured, it is a compelling intimate drama about how the impending first contact of the Inuit with Europeans will change everything.
