"Directed by Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner's Kunuk, One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk illustrates Inuit-colonial relationships brilliantly."—Kelly Boutsalis, Now Magazine

"One Day in the Life of Noah Piugattuk is a comedy of manners that is no laughing matter. The latest film from Zacharias Kunuk (The Fast Runner, Searchers) sees Inuit-settler relationships humorously and tragically lost in translation."—Pat Mullen, POV Magazine
