Maliglutit is a Zacharias Kunuk’s remake of John Ford’s western The Searchers. Kunuk transfers the story of the three robbers and kidnapped women to the frozen plains of the Arctic and the Inuit culture. The hunter Kuanana returns from a long trip to his igloo, only to discover that is has been attacked by the raiders who have 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.
