Maliglutit is a Zacharias Kunuk’s remake of John Ford’s western The Searchers. Kunuk transfers the story of three robbers and kidnapped women to the frozen plains of the Arctic. The main character, Kuanana, returns from a long hunting trip, only to discover that villains have raided his igloo and kidnapped his wife and daughter. He embarks on a fierce sled dog chase through the ice and snow trying to find the perpetrators. Set in 1913, the film is very authentic with multiple references to the Inuit life and traditions, enriched by the breathtaking scenery of Canadian Arctic.
