About the Movie

A real adventure film – for the 21st century. On a three-mast schooner packed with artists, scientists and ambitions worthy of Noah or Columbus, we set off for the end of the world: the rapidly melting massifs of North-East Greenland. An epic journey where the brave sailors on board encounter polar bear nightmares, Stone Age playgrounds and entirely new species. But in their encounter with new, unknown parts of the world, the crew of scientist and artists also confronted the existential questions of life. Curiosity, grand pathos and a liberating dose of humour come together in a superbly orchestrated film where one iconic image after the other seduces us far beyond the historical footnote that is humanity. A film conceived and brought to life on a grand scale - a long forgotten childhood dream lived out by grown artists and scientists.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [A] playful but ominously open-ended documentary about a motley crew of Danes headed to Greenland on a schooner. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Aug 20, 2014

Fresh: With a mood and setting worthy of a murder story by Jack London, this audience-friendly, atmospheric work explores the ice-blocked fjords of northeastern Greenland. – John Anderson, Variety, Mar 13, 2014

Fresh: Dencik's travelogue reveals a journey with curious traces of the past, eye-popping encounters with a wild present and ... a weighted reminder of our future as stewards of the Earth. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Sep 4, 2014

Rotten: In practice that means a lot of disconnected musing about the perilous state of the planet and the Darwinian aspect of climate change, the discourse rendered trivial by the staggering landscapes. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Mar 13, 2014
