Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner

Speaking of movies, this is basically Inuit Beowulf.

It was written, produced, directed, and acted entirely by Inuit people. I think a lot of people might be interested in Medieval Inuit art and literature, and this is a pretty great example.

You can watch and download the entire trilogy here for free (but donate if you can!!!); Atanarjuat is the first film and takes place around 1000 A.D.-ish. It also won a LOT of awards. Keep in mind: it’s entirely in Inuktitut, with English subtitles.

it’s a stunning movie

I’ve now finished watching the entire trilogy, and I have to say that all three films are mind-blowingly amazing.

Make sure you have a box of tissues, though because they will leave you pretty weepy.

I’ve watched it saturday und it is absolutely fascinating to see ancient inuits through the eyes of modern inuits !

Oh, absolutely! I love how they created the script, with double-checking on the action and the dialogue, and different elders pointing out small inconsistencies like, “Oh, no, they wouldn’t have spoken to each other at that point, it was illegal back then.” I love that they tried to make it as historically accurate as possible.

Video Interviews with the cast are available too.

Additional cool thing: the company that created this trilogy, Isuma, has since transformed their website into an indigenous people’s web TV channel. So what sites like ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, ScrewAttack, and the Escapist are for geeky pursuits, IsumaTV attempting to be for indigenous creators. 

Check them out, they’re pretty cool. 

^^I didn’t know that! Amazing!!

No no. bad Nakki! What have I told you about getting in fights with physics hobbyists on physic forums?? WE DON’T DO IT ANYMORE.  Because it makes us mad and then our head hurts!

I should just have this website blocked at work, it’s the only thing that will stop me.

there were actually tons of women and girls on board ships during the age of sail and it’s really cool history that no one!!! ever!!! talks about!!! 
like captains of merchant ships used to bring their wives and children on board for long voyages all the time (and of course there were plenty of well known female pirate ship captains, and women cross-dressing as men, and prostitutes that more people seem to know of)
there’s actually a really amazing story of one woman, Mary Ann Patten who was the wife of the captain of this ship called Neptune’s Car. Captain Patten decided that he wanted her onboard with him and she was super about this and learned all about navigation and sailing and everything. so this one voyage they’re going around the tip of south america when her husband gets sick and is bed ridden with a fever right as the ship sails into one of the worst storms any of the crew had ever seen and it looks like they might lose the ship or have to stop
so you know who takes over??? the first mate??? 
no.
MARY
she took over the whole crew and sailed that ship through freezing water and pack ice and had it coasting smoothly into the san francisco harbour like it was nothing. and she did this all at age 19. while pregnant.
at one point the first mate tried to get the crew to mutiny against her but they all rallied with her and told him to shut the heck up because she obv knew what she was doing.
there’s a great book about women in the age of sail called ‘female tars’ by suzanne stark that i cannot recommend enough and has way more amazing stories and insights about the myriad roles women and girls played aboard ship during that time period.

Oh, hi Tony! 

Reblogged just for the shot of Avengers Tower. Also the fact that, for a few minutes there, Tony Stark’s life was in Steve Rogers hands. Think this makes up for the bomb Tony saved everyone from?

Me in the theater: “Derp derp, Steve is going to save the day, wow explosions look at all the explosions wow Sam don’t fight Crossbones that is a bad, derp hey look they’re targeting people, why is the President on the Hill that’s dumb get into a bunker continuity of government is so fucked right n—HOLY SHIT IS THAT STARK TOWER? SHIT FUCK IS THAT TONY??? SAVE THAT DOT STEVEN. SAVE THAT ONE DOT IN PARTICULAR OR SO HELP ME GOD.”

an apt description of my reaction too

Guys guys guys guys, THE A ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING!! IT’S NO LONGER THE LEFTOVER STARK A! It’s the Avengers A =DDDDDDDDD

(Also, I can’t believe Pepper wasn’t also targeted. She’s WAAAAAAY more of a threat than Tony.)

I know I AM SO HAPPY THE A IS AS IT SHOULD BE but I totally missed it on first viewing.

My theory is that Pepper was out on the West Coast where I think Stark Industries is headquartered(?), so she doesn’t show up simply because the Helicarrier that would have targeted her had already been taken out by this point. 

I guess I always figured Pepper spent most of time in DC and NYC, and that California was just a research facility (it also currently doesn’t have a house).  Of course she could always be elsewhere, it’s just a tad odd that it’s just Tony in the tower being targeted. No Pepper, no Bruce, no Stark Industry employees who are just a little too smart and a little to vocal.  I get that it was probably just supposed to be a cute little easter egg, but they could have done better

Coulson’s wangst is really annoying.  I am so not interested in it anymore.

Ooo look GUNVIS.  I am not surprised that Fury has a GUNVIS to go with CARVIS.
