Thorvald The Hunter tells the story of Thorvald
– a 40-year-old Greenlandic man living in Blok 15, one of
the countless concrete tower blocks in Nuuk built as part of
the Danish government’s controversial ‘modernisation programme’ of Greenland.
Thorvald speaks fondly of his adventures hunting all across
Greenland. Sadly, a serious back injury prevents Thorvald
from being a hunter today. Thankfully, he’s found a solution:
to satisfy his cravings, Thorvald regularly makes a trip to the
Nuuk downtown supermarket where he ‘hunts’ for his own
Intimate and mischievous, Thorvald The Hunter provides a unique insight into life at the end of the world.
