Denmark, 2013, 90 min, in English and Danish with English Subtitles
An adventure film for the 21st century, EXPEDITION TO THE END OF THE WORLD takes an irreverent, philosophical look at humanity and our effect on the world around us. On a three-masted schooner packed with artists, scientists and ambitions worthy of Noah or Columbus, a crew sets sail for the end of the world: the rapidly melting massifs of Northeast Greenland. It is an epic journey, with the brave explorers on board encountering polar bear nightmares, Stone Age playgrounds and entirely new species. But in their meetings with these new and unknown parts of the world, the crew is also confronted with the existential questions of life.
Curiosity, grand pathos and a liberating dose of humor come together in this superbly styled film, where one breathtaking image after the other seduces the viewer into a world of almost alien beauty. A film conceived and brought to life on a grand scale, EXPEDITION TO THE END OF THE WORLD is like a long forgotten childhood dream, brought to life by grown artists, scientists, and philosophers.
