Portraits at the edge of the world, Chapter II

Kulusuk. An Inuit song against the war

Play video

In the Inuit language the word "war" doesn't exist. In the ancient times this community settled all disputes except murder through a song duel: this old tradition lasted until the XX century when it was banned by the Danish government. Anda Kuitse is a hunter and drum dancer living in Kulusuk, a small settlement in southeastern Greenland coast which is home to 200 people. Anda is the descendant of a family of shamans and he is now fighting for these traditions not to be forgotten and lost forever. A series presented by Nowness. Watch the video
