Where Eskimos Live is a 2002 drama that explores the sinister world of black-market adoptions. Set in war-ravaged Bosnia, the film follows Sharkey (Bob Hoskins), a child trafficker masquerading as a UNICEF caseworker. Sharkey is on the hunt for children to sell on the black-market in Poland. He finds Vlado Petric (Sergiusz Zymelka), a 9-year-old orphan who drifts in and out of a fantasy world populated with friendly Norwegian Eskimos. Sharkey convinces Vlado to join up with him while secretly working with a corrupt military officer, Colonel Vuko (Krzysztof Majchrzak), to sell him for a good price in Poland. As they spend time together, however, Sharkey and Vlado become friends. When Vlado turns out to be more than an innocent 9-year-old boy, Sharkey comes face-to-face with his own humanity and discovers that getting out of Bosnia won't be as easy he thought. Premiering at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival, this heart wrenching drama shows the real evil of war.
