Heart of Light (Qaamarngup uummataa) [Greenland/Denmark] by Jacob Gr??nlykke. Introduced by Assistant Professor Helena Karlsson, Department of Scandinavian Studies.

In 1947 Greenland became part of Denmark, At that time King Christian X of Denmark presents a commemorative sword to the Greenlander organizer of the event. Some 50 years later it is hanging on the apartment wall of the Greenlander's son Rasmus Lynge, an Inuit hunter who is succumbing to alcoholism, symbolic of the adverse effects of half a century of colonialism on the natives.
