so lately a movie called “Frozen Land” has gotten some attention due to it seemingly continuing the trend of Low Budget Animated Movie Tries To Fool Distracted Parents Into Thinking It’s The Latest Pixar/Disney Production. but looking into it more i found that this is way, way more than that
for one thing, the original title of this movie isn’t Frozen Land—it’s The Legend of Sarila, La Légende de Sarila in the original French. it’s only recently gained the translated title of Frozen Land when it got distributed to US audiences. it was released almost an entire year before Frozen came out, and other than the vaguely connecting theme of “ice,” Sarila has nothing to do with Frozen or its source material of The Snow Queen
though calling The Snow Queen ‘source material’ for Frozen is a generous stretchand is a completely different kind of story
Sarila is the first 3D animated movie to come out of Quebec and tells the story of
….an encampment of Inuit nomads is threatened by famine. The situation is dire as day after day the hunters return empty-handed. Unknown to anyone, the tribe’s shaman Croolik has embraced the dark arts and this is the true reason behind the disappearance of all the animals. The clan’s wise woman Saya recalls the legend of Sarila, a promised land hidden among the glaciers, where wild game is said to be plentiful. Legend has it that only the pure of heart may enter this hallowed place.
Three of the clan’s young people, chosen by Croolik’s treacherous crow Kwatak, agree to go in search of Sarila in order to save their tribe. There is Putulik, the chief’s son; the beautiful Apik, his fiancée; and Markussi, who only Croolik and Saya have discerned has a shaman’s gifts.
it’s not up to the animation standards of Disney and Pixar, but it’s not bad. it’s not even average—it’s interesting. it has a decent number of lady characters. it’s accurate to Inuit culture—Sedna is not just a character made up for the movie but a key figure in Inuit mythology. even the cutesy “kid appeal” character is fairly charming
i know a lot of you are disappointed in the lack of representation in animation, and have been criticizing Frozen in this regard. so i invite you not only to discuss Frozen, but to discuss and support a movie that has an entirely nonwhite cast—not just an entirely nonwhite cast but an entire cast of First Nations people, a group who see pitifully little representation in popular media. i invite you to support a movie from a relatively new studio, a studio who is eager to tell a serious story from a culture whose voice is almost never heard
your local bargain bin may want you to believe that this is just another low-budget ripoff, but it is not. this is a story worth considering, and i hope you will do just that

Heritage Minute - Halifax Explosion
"Hold up the train. Ammunition ship afire in harbor making for Pier 6 and will explode. Guess this will be my last message. Good-bye boys."
The largest man-made explosion prior to the development of nuclear weapons occurred on December 6, 1917 in Halifax Harbour. A French cargo ship carrying wartime explosives, the SS Mont-Blanc, collided with the Norwegian vessel SS Imo carrying relief supplies in a narrow strait, and twenty minutes later, an uncontrollable fire on board the French ship forced the crew to evacuate and ignited the volatile cargo. At 9:04 am, the ship exploded. Nearly all structures within a half-mile radius, including the entire neighbourhood of Richmond and the nearby community of Mi’kmaw First Nations people, were completely obliterated. Trees snapped, iron rails bent, windows shattered, buildings collapsed, vessels ran aground, and fragments of the Mont-Blanc travelled kilometres. Around 2000 people were killed and it is estimated that nearly 9000 others were injured. (pictured: the blast, the SS Imo, and the aftermath in Halifax) (adapted from +)
