Director: Mike Magidson, Subtitles Greenland/2010/84 min. 
Based on a French social worker's writings about Greenland's Inuit children who believe they are on thin ice, "Inuk" is the story of a neglected teenage boy sent to foster care on a remote island surrounded by sea ice. Deeply damaged by his mother's alcoholism and stepfather's violence, he develops awareness and resilience when he apprentices with the last great subsistence hunter, himself tortured by self-doubt and a haunted past. Stunning cinematography and stellar acting by an all-Greenlander, mostly Inuit cast.
