I REMEMBER - TALES FROM GREENLAND
Fourteen Greenlanders, all of whom have stories to tell, provide a fascinating portrait of a land and its people through their tales of childhood and youth. We hear about a 14-year old orphan boy who catches his first narwhale, about a boy who accidentally kills his puppy, about a woman who hears a qivittoq's (a mountain wanderer) cry of horror,
about a shaman who must battle with his spirit when he decides to become a Christian.
All tales from Ammassalik, Thule and Upernavik, narrated vividly and dramatically in the tradition of Greenlandic storytelling which has developed over centuries of long, dark polar winters.
