1. Atanarjuat – The Fast Runner:
This is one of the epic films that include the story of a historic Inuit legend concerning escape, love, and betrayal. It is wholly based on the Inuit language. Actually, it is the excellent work by special Inuit actors and filmmakers, who themselves research about their history and ancient customs with great care to bring all that back to life on screen. To make it work, its cast and crew moved to Canada, Igloolik, and lived in the tents bearing torturing weather. This all results in a beautiful and perfect movie giving a glimpse of the past we never know before.
2. The Mission-Columbus Movie:
The story of this movie circulates around two whites. It was one of the most popular movies that entirely get into the reality of South America between the time of the 1740s. There were just Jesuit Priests, the European believing that the indigenous communities which are around Rio De La Plata acquired souls within them and should not get kidnapped and get into slavery. This was the brutal custom that got followed a lot and tearing each of the tribes. The European, Jesuit Priest set foot on to the nearest tribes and end up with building cities with them for protection. This was the unique and respectful step taken in that violent time.
That’s not the thing that the Jesuits project was not having negativities. Still, it was the successful step for the protection of indigenous communities that was enough for making the crown angry. This was what result in a viciously violent attack on all the new cities for removing those Americans who are securing the rights of natives. This film is not right but a better initiation to make people know about the history that still has its mark.
This movie is a modish Guatemalan story. It is considerable because it is the very first movie that wholly get shoot in Kaqchikel, which is the Mayan language. This movie revolves around two potential indigenous women and scouts for the family relationships and suffers from cultural hopes from a young Mayan girl who is finding her space in the community. This movie also shows a side of the way brutality and racism are still affecting the indigenous people.
The actors of this movie were all the get cast in a local workshop that is carried by the director, who is himself a part of Mayan. And each of the movie dialogue is in Kaqchikel. This movie is a win for the people of indigenous Guatemalan, which hardly found then in media.
