Expedition to the End of the World / Ekspeditionen til verdens ende

Daniel Dencik (DK, 2013)

Ekspeditionen til verdens ende (Daniel Dencik, DK/SE, 2013)

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 the film where one iconic image after the other seduces us far beyond the historical footnote that is humanity.
