Drawings made by Grade 2 students after a class from the inuit Culture Education section of IsumaTV/DIAMA.

Second grade students watch the first part of Before Tomorrow film (made by the Inuit Women collective Arnait). In Nunavut, second grade class is given in Inuktitut so teacher used the film as a way to teach students Inuktitut vocabulary of traditional objects, transportation, and traditional way of living. Then students made some drawings of what they could remember of the film. Students were able to understand the film and related to it. The film is made in Inuktitut and is an excellent resource for the Inuktitut teacher who lacks more learning resources in Inuktitut.

Third Inuit feature (2009) in The Fast Runner Trilogy.

Winner of Best Canadian First Feature at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival, Before Tomorrow is the first feature film written and directed by Igloolik's Arnait Video Productions women's collective, which have been filming Inuit women's stories since 1991. Story based on For Morgendaggen by Jorn Riel.

Circa 1840. Two isolated families meet after many years. It is summer; a happy time to celebrate their reunion. Despite the joyful mood, Ningiuq, an old woman of strength and wisdom, cannot stop worrying. Is it the illness of her best friend, Kutuguk, who is preparing to die? Or is it the strange foreign object that Maniq, her favourite grandson, found on the beach? .

After a successful fishing season, the families decide to dry the winter's catch on a remote island. Ningiuq volunteers to take on this chore. Her faithful grandson Maniq follows her, as does the old Kutuguk. As the cold of fall begins the three wait in vain for the hunters to return. When the first snow falls Ningiuq decides to return to the main camp with Maniq to see what has happened to the others

Reviews

"A profound, elemental and hauntingly beautiful period drama that makes an intimate story of endurance into a metaphor for an entire culture." Alissa Simon, Variety.

"Mesmerizingly beautiful, with heartbreaking performances by the principals, this third film in the trilogy from Igloolik Isuma Productions...has maybe 10 pages of dialogue, but it flies by." Susan Cole, Now Magazine.

"A mythic quality, a sense of symbolism and spirits that seem to rise from the tundra.... Before Tomorrow is about the end of the end." Jay Stone, National Post.
