At the height of the Cold War, sixty-five indigenous Greenlandic families were forcibly relocated from their homes to make way for an American military base. More than fifty years later in Qaanaaq, the town created 100 kilometers away, filmmaker Nicole Paglia talks to some of the people who remember their old village, the homes and the traditional lifestyle they were forced to abandon.
