The film is the third and final chapter in THE FAST RUNNER TRILOGY, beginning with Zacharias Kunuk's arthouse hit THE FAST RUNNER (ATANARJUAT) (2001) and followed by THE JOURNALS OF KNUD RASMUSSEN (2006). These three groundbreaking Inuit films express the dramatic history of one of the world’s oldest oral cultures from its own point of view. BEFORE TOMORROW is set in 1840, at a time when some Inuit tribes had yet to meet white people, and thus maintained their traditional way of life. The ballads of Kate and Anna McGarrigle set the tone for this tender, affecting tale of a small boy (Paul-Dylan Ivalu) and his beloved grandmother (co-director Madeline Piujuq Ivalu), living amid the harsh Arctic wilderness.
