Long before snowmobiles and rescue helicopters, the Inuit defied the elements of nature and lived their life in snow and cold.

Maïna is a Canadian drama film, released in 2013. Directed by Michel Poulette, the film stars Roseanne Supernault as Maïna, the daughter of Innu chief Mishtenapuu (Graham Greene), who embarks on a quest into Inuit territory to rescue Nipki, a young boy from her community captured by the Inuit following a battle.

The film's cast also includes Tantoo Cardinal, Eric Schweig and Natar Ungalaaq.

The film was named Best Picture at the 2013 American Indian Film Festival, and Supernault was named Best Actress.[2] The film also garnered six Canadian Screen Award nominations at the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Picture, Best Art Direction/Production Design, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Original Score and Best Make-Up.

In the aftermath of a bloody confrontation between her band, the Innu tribe, and the Inuits, the “Men from the Land of Ice”, MAÏNA, daughter of Grand Chief Mishte-Napeu, finds herself on a mission that will change the course of her life. In order to fulfill a promise made to her friend Matsii as she lay on her deathbed, MAÏNA has to follow the trail of her enemies to retrieve Nipki, Matsii’s 11-year-old son who has been captured by the Inuits. She is taken captive herself by Natak, the Inuit clan’s leader, and forced to travel with them to the Land of Ice.

Taking place before contact with Europeans, MAINA introduces us to two fascinating civilizations that founded America.  (Source)

Maïna has been accepted to Buster International Children's Film Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark! It will screen at the Festival in September.
