What happens when a western civilization reach out an ancient hunter based culture4000 years old? This is the story of the end of a small world.There are Tobias, the last hunter of the Ivis, and his daughter Gerda that may or may not leave Greenland. There is Robert, a former explorer, which estabilished his final residence in a Red House, from where he observes the remnants of a civilization, facing its own personal finale.
“The Red House” aims to describe the consequences of western civilizations on a different culture, in a place that looks like a broken toy, left by a child who lost interest too soon. From the seal hunting run of the XX century to the Greenpeace campaigns which banned it, it looks like the westerners taint what they touch, though only some of them seem to realize it. Maybe that’s what Robert Peroni is suggesting, a way to go back an to give back.
