This year's nominee for the Nordic Council Film Prize from Greenland.

Eight years have passed since six youths were attacked by a Qivittoq (a Greenlandic mythological figure). Tuuma is a tourist guide in Greenland and often sails with tourists in this Arctic region. On one trip, two Danish tourists decide to go to the site of the attack and manage to persuade a reluctant Tuuma. Unfortunately, his bad gut feeling becomes a reality, and the two tourists disappear. Tuuma quickly sails back to Nuuk to seek help from the police, who initially don't take him seriously. But is it wise to go back and search for the tourists when Qivittoqs are in the mountains? In this film, we are not exposed to monsters, vampires, or zombies.

Alanngut Killinganni explores a scary creature from Inuit mythology, where if one left society due to jealousy, anger, or shame and went to live alone in the mountains, they could become a Qivittoq. Here, mythology is staged in a classic low-budget horror film format.

Alanngut Killinganni is the first Greenlandic film to be nominated for the Nordic Council Film Prize.
