abstract
"The film is a tribute to Jean Malaurie's lifetime work on the Arctic People. After spending 1950-51 with an isolated group of Eskimos in northern Greenland, sharing their life at the very edge of survival, Jean Malaurie and his companions returned to Thule village to confront a U.S. Air Force base under construction, and suddenly, 'Men who lived by the harpoon found themselves in the Atomic Age.' When he returned to the Arctic in 1972, the base had irreversibly transformed the Eskimo (Inuit) culture. Addressing these topics and his own experiences, his book The Last King of Thule (1955) earned internationally [sic] acclaim. The film continues in Malaurie's footsteps and exposes changes affecting the small hunting and fishing communities of northern Greenland today, including globalization, market economy, exploitation of its natural resources and climate change."--Container.
