Expedition to the end of the world

Haslund Film presents a real adventure film - but in a very modern sense.
A grand, adventurous journey to the last uncharted areas of the globe.
Yet no matter how far we go, and how hard we try to find the answer, the ultimate meeting is with ourselves and our own transience.
A real adventure film – for the 21st century. 
On a three-mast schooner aboard with artists, scientists and ambitions worthy of Noah or Columbus, we set off towards the end of the world: in this case, the rapidly melting ice massifs in North-East Greenland.
An epic journey where the brave sailors get acquainted with imaginary tent pitches, polar bear nightmares and entirely new species.
But in their encounter with the new, unknown parts of our world, the crew - which ranges from the artists Tal R and Daniel Richter to the geologist Minik Rosing - addresses a number of questions of a fundamental, existential nature.
Curiosity, great pathos and a liberating splash of humour come together in a film that is superbly orchestrated by the cinematic talent Daniel Dencik, who in one iconic image after another seduces us both far beyond and deep into the historical footnote that is humanity.
A film that is both conceived and brought into life on a large scale, just like an old childhood dream lived out by grown artists and scientists realised in adult company.
