The Raven and the Seagull

Lasse Lau, Denmark, 2018

71 min.DK/Documentary

A journey along the beautiful west coast of Greenland and its proud Inuit culture. We meet a modern Greenland in an ongoing struggle fitting in with the many assumptions left by the colonial past and present, trying to reckon this with the future. 300 years of colonial history has set an imprint in the faces of two nations. In Greenland, we meet a young pregnant woman in the small town of Qeqertarsuaq at her last doctor’s appointment communicating in a language she doesn’t understand. In Copenhagen, a young hunter is trapped in a museum as an eye-opening and harsh comment of the post-colonial Danish way of perceiving Greenlanders.
