Film: The Wedding of PaloThe Wedding of Palo, filmed in 1932 by the famous Greenland anthropologist and explorer, Knud Rasmussen, is a semi-documentary of Inuit life in East Greenland.

Palo is an appealing story of two men who desire the same woman as a wife.  The film allows the viewer fascinating glimpses of Inuit life, ranging from hunting expeditions to the wedding ceremony.  The film footage of East Greenland is spectacular!
