Modern Languages & Linguistics Film Series - Film 4: Before Tomorrow (Canada, Marie-Hélène Cousineau & Madeleine Ivalu, 2008)

Cultural Isolation (19 November – 10 December)

Before Tomorrow (Canada, Marie-Hélène Cousineau & Madeleine Ivalu, 2008)

In summer of 1840, a group of Inuit families gather to fish. Ningiuq and her grandson stay on a remote island to dry the catch for winter. Though the celebration has been bountiful and joyous, Ningiuq sees her world as fragile and moves through it with a pervasive sense of dread. An intimate portrait of culture gradually becomes a tale of survival, as the pair wait in vain for the others to meet them. Based on the novel by Jørn Riel.
