Ever Deadly

Mesmerizing. Tagaq is a disarmingly funny, unsurprisingly eloquent and playfully coy presence... A fitting cinematic expansion to Tagaq's art.

COMING SOON OPENS in 9 days, December 11

Part of Culture Vulture film series

Ever Deadly

Throughout her ground-breaking career, Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq has always had an intimate relationship with the Nuna – the Land – a living, breathing organism present in her improvised performances. Winner of the Juno and Polaris Prize and collaborator of the Kronos Quartet, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Saul Williams, and Björk, hers is a voice that, according to the New York Times, “demands full attention, whether she’s whispering in her softest register or howling at the sky.” Ever Deadly weaves together intimate concert footage of Tagaq alongside moving personal reflections, stunning sequences filmed in Nunavut, and hand-drawn animation by Inuk artist Shuvinai Ashoona to seamlessly bridge history, landscapes, stories, and songs with pain, anger, and triumph – all through the expressions of one of the most innovative musical performers of our time.

“An emotional and engaging snapshot of Tagaq's career — one that has been so intertwined with her ancestry, spirituality, and thoughtfulness for others.” — Exclaim!

"So tantalizing you won’t want to look away.” — Critic’s Notebook

Directed by Chelsea McMullan & Tanya Tagaq.
