An iceberg looms, huge and luminous. A river winds through a wide glacial valley, surrounded by stark mountains. A rainbow arches over the rocky terrain. "My name is Adamie Inukpuk," says the Inuit, drinking from the glacial stream. "I have lived in this land for over 5,000 years." The grandson of legendary Nanook, who burst onto the screen and into our hearts in 1922's Nanook of the North, Adamie guides you through the land, traditions and culture of the Inuit.
Experience a whirling journey of rich landscapes, course over the rugged terrain with a rhythmic energy like that of a herd of migrating caribou, and share the extraordinary plight of the people who have long lived in harmony with the harsh elements of the Arctic.
Great North features the wild vistas of some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes - the Artic regions of Quebec and Labrador, as well as northern Sweden. The endless silence of the tundra. Icebergs drifting majestically on the Arctic waters. The elegant ballet of the aurora borealis. And the unceasing, ingenious efforts of northern peoples to adapt to life in an environment both harsh and rich.!
