Mar 30th, 2017: Inuits

Brian Adams is a Pro photographer, author, and blogger. He likes to photograph smaller towns of American citizens.
You know, the kind of town you may live in, or maybe grew up in, but certainly know people who do.



What, your neighbors don't spread blubber in the yard to freeze?



Well, they must hunt and fish and steam bathe like every one else.



And they certainly must maintain their vehicles unless they're rich enough to trade every year.



Some must rock&roll, giggle and act coy if it's not a selfie, and hang out at the diner or bar swapping lies.

See, just typical Americans.
But they don't look like us, they look funny, they look foreign.
Well they're Inuits, and their small American town is in the American State of Alaska. They do American things
like work, and curse the weather, watch TV, have family problems, celebrate birthdays, catch diseases, love,
loathe, and die like every other American.
But they're different.
We're all different, we're all individuals, but we're all Americans in the same boat and better start paddling in
the same fucking direction or we're going to sink together. Capiche?

I know it has been said before, however, everyone who lives on this continent came from some other place. We're all immigrants. We just arrived at different times for different reasons.

Me? I was born here.

In fairness that describes everywhere humans live aside from a relatively small area of Africa.

Touché.

There is a film, Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner, that is made by an Inuit director. It takes place in the ancient past, and is definitely worth watching. According to wikipeia,

Quote:
In 2015, a poll of filmmakers and critics in the Toronto International Film Festival named it the greatest Canadian film of all time
Anyhow, at the end of the film there are out takes showing the actors and directors off camera and behind the camera, in a typical "lifting the veil" fashion. After being immersed in the ancient past for 2 hours and then suddenly seeing those same actors wearing leather jackets, Raybans, driving around on skimobiles, is more than culture shock, it puts a fine point on cultural assumptions and romanticizing "native cultures."

The trailers for the film don't begin to show how astounding the film is.

Put it on your kweekwee (queue)

Thanks for the tip.


Atanarjuat, how the hell will I remember that name?



DanaC  Friday Mar 31 03:58 PM

Just remember 'the fast runner'
