Awards recap
In Greenland’s capital, sixteen year-old Inuk lives a troubled life with his alcoholic mother and violent step-father. 

One morning, after pulling the half-frozen boy out of an abandoned car, the social services decide to send Inuk North, to a children’s home on a tiny island in the middle of the arctic sea-ice. There, Inuk meets Ikuma, a local polar bear hunter, who has his own share of problems. Haunted by his troubled past, his extraordinary hunting skills are mysteriously disappearing.

The children's home’s warm-hearted director, Aviaaja, asks Ikuma to take Inuk on his annual seal-hunting trip. She is certain that despite the risks of such a long and dangerous voyage, Inuk will learn that he has a valiant past and a hopeful future.

So, when Inuk, the city boy, joins Ikuma, the great hunter of the North, on the epic dogsled voyage, they face much more than the bitter cold and fragile sea-ice. The most difficult part of the journey is the one they must make within themselves...

Created as an original road-movie on the sea-ice, 'Inuk' is both an
authentic story of Greenland today, a country torn between tradition and modernity, and a universal story about the quest for identity, transmission and rebirth after the deepest of wounds.

The authenticity of the film was intensified by the exceptional
performance of the nonprofessional Inuit actors: teenagers from a home
for neglected Inuit children and local seal hunters. 'Inuk', Magidson's first feature-length narrative, is the fruit of a unique friendship with them.
