One night, me, a couple of friends and the locals went to a special event on the ice. We’d decided offhand to do something special for the village children: late in the evening, we projected the movie Inuk onto an iceberg under the myriad stars and the northern lights. The looks on the spectators’ faces fascinated me, so instead of watching the movie, I began discreetly taking their photos. Inuk is a Greenlandic language film directed by Mike Magidson. Inuk covers a journey from Greenland's south to its north as an homage to the origins of the Inuit people.
