Description
In this gorgeously filmed travelogue, a motley group of seafaring scientists, artists and philosophers set sail in a three-masted schooner for one of the most remote corners of the globe: the fjords of northeastern Greenland, which have only recently become accessible thanks to global warming. On this exploratory mission to a land untouched by modern man, the sailors are confronted by polar bears and melting glaciers, but at the heart of their journey lies less tangible ponderings about man’s origins and our place in nature. The film is a rollicking, anarchical adventure full of hijinks and high-minded science on the high seas.
