Le jour avant le lendemain (Before Tomorrow)

Marie-Hélène Cousineau & Madeline Piujuq Ivalu – Canada, 2008 (93min, Inuktitut with English subtitles)

Starring: Madeline Piujuq Ivalu, Paul-Dylan Ivalu, Peter-Henry Arnatsiaq, Mary Qulitalik, Tumasie Sivuarapik

In the Canadian Arctic of the 1840s, 10-year-old Maniq and his beloved grandmother Ningiuq travel to the remote island where, every year, their family prepares food for winter. But, as the seasons progress, their hard but idyllic existence unexpectedly begins to unravel. Equal parts coming of age story, endurance drama and cautionary tale of colonialism, the debut feature from Arnait Video Productions also features a suite of original songs by legendary Québécoise folk musicians Kate and Anna McGarrigle.
