Part of ANORI
Set amongst the stunning landscapes of Greenland and the towering buildings of New York City, ANORI is a love story inspired by old Greenlandic myths. It is the story of Anori, a woman who believes only in all that is good in life, and Inuk, a man whose love for her knows no bounds. After a tragic accident involving Inuk, Anori struggles to accept that good does not always prevail. As the dark forces of human nature threaten to overcome her, she is determined to bring back the light at all costs. ANORI is a milestone film as the first movie to be directed by a Greenlandic woman and features a stunning performance by the renowned Nukaaka Coster-Waldau in the lead role.
