EXPEDITION TO THE END OF THE WORLD (Denmark, 2013, 90 min.)
Living in the Anthropocene: The Age of Humans
Washington, D.C. Premiere A three-masted schooner packed with artists, scientists and ambitions worthy of Noah or Columbus, sets off for the end of the world: the rapidly melting massifs of North-East Greenland. Viewers will take 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 scientists and artists also confront the existential questions of life. Curiosity, grand pathos and a liberating dose of humor come together in a superbly orchestrated film where one iconic image after the other seduces us far beyond the historical footnote that is humanity. Directed by Daniel Dencik. Produced by Michael Haslund.
Introduced by Inuuteq Holm Olsen, Minister Plenipotentiary for Greenland, Embassy of Denmark. Discussion with Igor Krupnik, Curator, Arctic Studies Center, National Museum of Natural History, follows screening.
