EXILE (D: Zacharias Kunuk, Canada). 48 minutes. Subtitled. October 17, 5 pm, Al Green Theatre. Rating: NNN
The acclaimed director of Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner and The Journals Of Knud Rasmussen puts on his documentarian's cap for this oral history of the Canadian government's forced relocation of Inuit families to remote Arctic lands in 1953. Zacharias Kunuk's half-dozen principal subjects tell grim, awful stories of families separated and lands stolen; their vivid testimonials help compensate for the doc's talking-head visuals and repetitive structure.
