Kamera Alpin in Gold 2014

A film which treats the essential questions, such as the origin of the earth, life, or the end of all life, in a surprising and humorous way. On a historic three-master, several completely different characters travel along the breath-taking northeast coast of Greenland. The director and his camera team succeed in revealing in an impressive way how humans can philosophize individually and at the same time in a similar vein about the world and its secrets.

On a three-masted 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 unknown parts of our world, the crew addresses a number of questions of fundamental, existential nature. Curiosity, great pathos and a liberating splash of humour come together in a film that is superbly orchestrated in one iconic image after another.
