Cast & Crew
Utuniarsuak Avike is an 87-year-old hunter in northwest Greenland who is now retired and living in a small apartment with his sole remaining sled dog and carvings of his former prey. Tales of his younger life as a polar bear and walrus hunter are told through poetic visualizations and re-enactments which bring to life a world of tradition and ritual rapidly fading into modernity.
Shown at Aspen Filmfest in Aspen, Colorado September 23-27, 1998.
