In 2009 I saw Inuit filmmakers Marie-Hélène Cousineau and Madeline Piujuq Ivalu’s beautiful film Before tomorrow. Uvanga is their new feature film. It takes place in Igloolik, Nunavut. Anna, a white women from Montréal, and her 14-year old son Tomas, arrive to visit his late father’s parents. Anna left Igloolik after she got pregnant. Tomas also meets his half-brother Travis. At first Tomas is unhappy to be there, and wonders why they came to such a remote, boring place. Not everyone is pleased by Anna’s visit. Sheba, Travis’ mom, is clearly angry that her late husband’s mistress is back. Tomas and Travis get along very well, and Tomas goes seal hunting, and skin the seal with his brother and his uncle. The boys will also find out how their dad died. Lukasi Forrest as Tomas, and Travis Kunnuk as Travis are the heart of Uvanga. Throughout the film they quietly show us the growing affection between the two brothers. No words are necessary. The beautiful Arctic landscapes are worth the price of the ticket. It is breathtaking. Uvanga is a rare look at a modern-day Inuit community.
