Set in 1961 on Canada’s far northern Baffin Island, Zacharias Kunuk’s latest drama is a quietly riveting tale drawn from the historical reality of the attempted forced relocation and cultural assimilation of Canada’s Inuit Indigenous peoples. 'One Day revolves around Noah Piugattuk' and his nomadic Inuit band who live and hunt as their ancestors have done for millennia in the vast snowy landscapes. During one hunting trip, proceedings are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of an Inuit translator and a white government employee, known as ‘Boss.’ Dispatched by the Government of Canada, Boss wants to convince Noah and his band to move to a settlement far from their traditional lands. Their intense conversation, translated with varying (and amusing) degrees of accuracy, is both dramatic and illuminating about the processes of, and strategies of resistance to, the forces of colonization. Mesmerizing.
