Kitty does not know what to do with the butterfly that landed on its paw.
Speaking of movies, this is basically Inuit Beowulf.
It was written, produced, directed, and acted entirely by Inuit people. I think a lot of people might be interested in Medieval Inuit art and literature, and this is a pretty great example.
You can watch and download the entire trilogy here for free (but donate if you can!!!); Atanarjuat is the first film and takes place around 1000 A.D.-ish. It also won a LOT of awards. Keep in mind: it’s entirely in Inuktitut, with English subtitles.
it’s a stunning movie
I’ve now finished watching the entire trilogy, and I have to say that all three films are mind-blowingly amazing.
Make sure you have a box of tissues, though because they will leave you pretty weepy.
I’ve watched it saturday und it is absolutely fascinating to see ancient inuits through the eyes of modern inuits !
Oh, absolutely! I love how they created the script, with double-checking on the action and the dialogue, and different elders pointing out small inconsistencies like, “Oh, no, they wouldn’t have spoken to each other at that point, it was illegal back then.” I love that they tried to make it as historically accurate as possible.
Video Interviews with the cast are available too.
Additional cool thing: the company that created this trilogy, Isuma, has since transformed their website into an indigenous people’s web TV channel. So what sites like ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, ScrewAttack, and the Escapist are for geeky pursuits, IsumaTV attempting to be for indigenous creators.
^^I didn’t know that! Amazing!!
A few years ago the director, Zacharias Kunuk, also made the first documentary to discuss climate change from the perspective of the Inuit, focusing on their own traditional body of knowledge regarding the environment. It’s called Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change and can be found here.
I am absolutely going to watch that, and wanted to reblog so others can have the opportunity to do so. Thank you!
Bunny falls asleep
bun didn’t actually fall asleep!! bunnies flop over like this when they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. they rarely stretch out and lay down because they’re prey animals, so when ur bun does completely lays on their side or their back, it means they feel 10000% safe around you
i have more followers than my high school has students. i could make a text post saying nothing but “hot gay throbbing cocks” and reach a wider audience than my principal does when he gets on the P.A. system
i was really high when i made this post and im still not sure what i was trying to say but it was definitely not this
I’ve got this… nephew. This nephew who is, I mean, he’s an adult. But you can’t infantilize them, you can’t live their life for them. But still, I mean, there is that frustration. You know, that… God, that frustration that goes along with, you know: “Yes, as a matter of fact, I do know what is best for you, so listen.” But of course, they don’t. I mean, what do you do with someone like that?
