Storyline

'Tupilaq' is a very personal short film revolving around the themes of cultural alienation, abuse, and contrast between mythological nature and western culture. Tupilaq gives a heartbreaking peek into a traditional Greenlandic background, in contrast to the every life of western society. In the film, this contrast is depicted through the repetitive monotony and the human distance of modern society - with its square buildings and faceless people - opposed to the natural beauty of the Greenlandic landscape, pictured as a unattainable world of an idealized painting. As the film balances between superstition and rationality, the film uses the Tupilaq as a symbol. The Tupilaq is both a symbol of the spirit of a forefather and a curse, which you can cast upon an enemy
