The 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!
