13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>The Necessities of Life</i> Montpelier Vermont

This finely wrought drama, Grand Prize winner at the 2008 Montreal Film
Festival, was inspired by a tuberculosis epidemic that broke out among the Inuit population of Canada's Far North in the 1940s and 1950s. Natar Ungalaaq of THE FAST RUNNER stars as Tivii, a stricken man yanked from his isolated home terrain to a Quebec City hospital, where he experiences both profound culture shock and some barrier-transcending
human connections. While no one there speaks his native tongue, Tivii does grasp that his treatment is expected to last as long as two years. Toronto Star: "In examining what constitutes the necessities of life, writer-director Benoit Pilon presents a variety of options-communication, belonging, acceptance and family. But chief among them is dignity." Sponsored by Quebec Government Office in Boston. 105 minutes, in Inuktitut and French with subtitles.
