QIVITOQ

Directed by : Erik BALLING

Country : DENMARK

Prix du documentaire romanesque (tied) , 1957

Synopsis

The Danish film Qivitoq was filmed in its entirety in the vast expanses and snowy wastes of Greenland. In semi-documentary fashion, the story details the relationship between the Danes and the Eskimos, and with the ancient superstitions that govern the behaviour of both. Unlucky in love, the heroine enters into a relationship with a trading company executive. Meanwhile, the trader is doing his best to persuade an Eskimo to become one of the company's fishermen, despite fears of reprisal from the evil spirit Qivitoq. How these two plot strands are woven together is the crux of the film.
