Book cinema tickets for Nanook Taxi

The first dramatic feature produced in the Canadian North, this offbeat comedy follows Ningiuksiak (played by Inuk activist Joanasie Salomonie), who is obliged to travel to the big city of Frobisher Bay to work as a taxi driver. The rarely-seen directorial debut of filmmaking outsider Ed Folger (who had by then served as assistant to George Lucas, Elaine May and Hal Ashby, amongst others), Nanook Taxi is also a searing social indictment about the social difficulties and prejudices faced by Inuits in the 1970s.
