Inuit
13 July 2007 | by davidgfraserSee all my reviews

Thank you, I took the writing of this film very seriously and appreciate your compliment. During the shoot, in Iqaluit, I had the pleasure of meeting the Inuit cast, many of whom doubled up on technical support and crew work. Great, resourceful, friendly people. Though I didn't know it at the time, it turns out that Lucien is actually a highly respected authority on Inuit law - just as he appears to be in the film!

Natar paid me a funny, sideways compliment. He smiled after he told me, so I can never be sure if he was kidding me, but he said that when he read the script he didn't think I was white, he thought I was Dene!
