(ZACHARIUS KUNUK, ALASKA, 2016, 15)

An indigenous Alaskan remake of John Ford’s classic Western, ‘The
Searchers’ relocates the action to the indigenous communities of the
Canadian Arctic. Kuanana returns from a caribou hunt to find his wife
and daughter have been kidnapped. Assisted by his father’s spirit
helper, the loon Kallulik, he sets out into the Arctic wilds in pursuit
of the kidnappers to bring his family home. The film will be introduced
with traditional music from Alaskan harpist Cheyenne Brown.
