On the Ice: In the isolated, frozen town of Barrow, Alaska, Iñupiaq teenagers Qalli and Aivaaq have grown up like brothers in a tight-knit community defined as much by ancient traditions as by hip-hop and snowmobiles. Early one morning, on a seal hunt with their friend James, a tussle turns violent, and James is killed. Panic stricken, terrified, and with no one to blame but themselves, Qalli and Aivaaq lie and declare the death a tragic accident. As Barrow roils with grief and his protective father becomes suspicious, Qalli stumbles through guilt-filled days, wrestling with his part in the death. For the first time in his life, he's treading alone on existential ice.

The acting was actually quite good/ very realistic, that is what happens to kids in certain cultures when they embrace hip-hop, on the surface it seems to dull them a little bit. you ever see a kid who just seems kind of dead in the eyes? speaks with a monotone voice, and every sentence sounds like a bit of a question... I know kids like the ones in this movie, i grew up around kids like this. The story is slow,(you could say it moves at a "glacial" pace... yeah i told that joke. Deal with it.), but it's classically tragic, and engaging every step of the way. I'm glad i stumbled across it.

Wow, no comments about this film, that came out a year and a half ago ?? It was slow paced, but worth watching. It also made me think about the Eskimo culture and the interesting people from this film. I have watched many travel programs, but have not seen one on Eskimo's, no comments here, kind of explains that, they are off the radar, in that flat and very cold part of the world...

A wonderful, amazing film featuring unknown and non-professional actors who are incredibly talented and 100% believable. What a masterful accomplishment! Thanks for this movie. *10-21-15

I thought this was a good movie and the acting was'nt bad at all. It's kind of slow in the beginning, but it picks up and get's very interesting, just give it a chance.Definitely worth a watch, it's not a movie that I would buy on dvd, but it's still good. I don't know why the one guy waited so long to tell the truth, but in the end, it did'nt matter, the other guy did what he thought was the right thing to do, but truthfully, they would both get jail time, no matter how you look at it, and no matter who takes the blame, for the crime.I don't know if I would take responsibility, for someone elses crime, but apparently, the power of friendship,can go a long way, it's really sad. 3/5
