Discussant: Benoît Pilon, director and screen writer, via Skype
In Iqaluit by French-Canadian director Benoît Pilon, Carmen travels for the first time to Iqaluit, the capital of Canada’s newest, largest and northernmost territory. Her husband Gilles has been gravely injured and she wants to be at his bedside. Trying to find out how her husband sustained his injuries, she grows closer to Noah, an Inuk (or Eskimo) friend of Gilles and soon comes to understand that their dramas are deeply intertwined. What happened? What is Noah’s involvement in these events? Will Carmen be able to find the answers to her questions? In French, Inuktitut and English, with English subtitles. 102 minutes.
