Nanook of the North/The Wedding of Palo
April 20, 2013
ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Nanook of the North/The Wedding of Pal. Fascination with the lives of Eskimos resulted in these early documentary films. Nanook of the North serves as a silent-film predecessor to the documentary, and follows the life of Inuit Nanook and his family for one year in the Arctic Circle. The emotionally charged docudrama, The Wedding of Palo , reveals the romantic love triangle between one woman and two men who maintain a bitter rivalry for her affections, but also showcases the Arctic tundra and Inuit traditions.
