The Journals of Knud Rasmussen

| 1 Comment
Something to look forward to - a new film from the makers of Atanarjuat. Details from the Globe & Mail:
While Atanarjuat was based on a 4,000-year-old oral tale, The Journals of Knud Rasmussen is based on detailed accounts kept by the 1920s Danish ethnographer/explorer Rasmussen (played by the Danish actor Jens Jorn Spottag) and his companions, who travelled in the Arctic and chronicled the dramatic impact of Christianity on what was then called the Eskimo way of life.

The heart of the epic tragedy is the story of Ava, the last great Inuit shaman and his beautiful and headstrong daughter, who struggle to survive and adapt as their world evolves (or devolves, depending on your perspective).

I loved Atanarjuat! I'm glad they're making a new film. Looks like a good one.
