| Maliglutit (Searchers) remakes a western, making the native the hero
Maliglutit (Searchers) is inspired by the 1950 John Ford western "The Searchers". In the original, a white woman is kidnapped by members of the Comanche Nation. In this version, the narrative is flipped and all the characters in the film are Inuit. The film is action packed, suspense filled, and beautifully written and directed. It is at many times calming and then suddenly intense, which makes for a riveting viewing experience. This film would be enjoyed by those who love action, suspense, and thrillers and also those who enjoy broadening their film experience across cultures. Anyone who has watched the 1950's version should watch this remake.
