Master of Ungava

Canada, 1979 (MIFF 1980, Nature Films)

Director: Bernard Beaupré

One knows whence the wind blows, but no-one never really knew where the Caribou went. He's from a big country, he knows how to live there, feeling its rhythm along with the seasons. Peaceful and silent, like the land all around, he tells us a beautiful and simple story of love and strength. He's truly Master of Ungava.
