THE GREAT NORTH. An iceberg looms, huge and luminous. A river winds through a wide glacial valley, surrounded by stark mountains. A rainbow arches over the rocky terrain. ""- My name is Adamie Inukpuk,"" says the Inuit, drinking from the glacial stream. ""- I have lived in this land for over 5,000 years"". The grandson of legendary Nanook, who burst onto the screen and into our hearts in 1922's Nanook of the North, Adamie, guides you through the land, traditions and culture of the Inuit. Experience a whirling journey of rich landscapes, course over the rugged terrain with a rhythmic energy like that of a herd of migrating caribou, and share the extraordinary plight of the people who have long lived in harmony with the harsh elements of the Arctic.
Robert Flaherty's documentary NANOOK OF THE NORTH, about the Inuit people who lived off the frigid landscape of the Arctic North, is a seminal work of film history. In GREAT NORTH, produced for the massive IMAX screen, Nanook's very own grandson serves as narrator, taking viewers through the rich, white majesty of the setting in which he and his people still live. Along with doing justice to the breathtaking and awesome landscape of the freezing, snow-covered environment, GREAT NORTH also looks into the long-standing traditions, such as fishing and hunting, of the Inuit tribes.
