EKSPEDITION TO THE END OF THE WORLD

2013 - 90 minutes - english, danish

Director: Daniel Dencik

Producer: Michael Haslund Christensen

 

THE FILM

In these times of climate change, a group of artist and scientists go on an epic journey aboard a three-mast schooner. They 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 a superbly orchestrated film where one iconic image after the other seduces us far beyond the historical footnote of humanity. A film conceived and brought to life on a grand scale - a long forgotten childhood dream lived out by grown artists and scientists.
