Amaqqut Nunaat (The Country of Wolves)
dir. Neil Christopher

Amaqqut Nunaat is a traditional Inuit story about two brothers who find themselves adrift on broken sea ice while out hunting for seal. They drift in the darkness for many days, until the ice they are on settles on the shore of a strange and distant land — a land where men can shape-shift into wolves and music and merriment can be the sounds of danger. Quickly the brothers realize that in the Country of Wolves, nothing is what it seems.
