The Last Ice Hunters tells the story of the current generation of hunters from the Eastern Greenland Inuit community, a culture dating back 4,000 years. Having been created within that environment, one of the most specialised hunting cultures in the world is unique and precious in many regards. However, the world of the Inuit has been changing with the speed of light, and their culture is now on the brink of extinction. The film shares the story of these proud hunters, to present their disappearing culture, and shed light on the issue of indigenous peoples.
