Gronland - In the Glare of Ice


45' (ENG, GER)

Survival north of the Arctic Circle in one of the harshest areas in the world. Greenland is the largest island in the world and the landmass closest to the North Pole. 80% of the country is covered by a layer of ice up to 3000 meters thick. Most of the inhabitants of the country are spread over the breathtaking landscape of the ice-free west coast. The country is mostly inhabited by Inuit, who have been feeding on what nature has provided them for thousands of years. But the original life is in a state of change. The modernisation of society and man-made global warming threaten the Arctic natural paradise that is so incredibly important for our planet.
Through the eyes of locals we get to know the authentic Greenland: A narwhal hunter in the traditional north of the island struggles for survival. The young Greenlander Kimmernaq leads a group of adventurers onto the endless inland ice and camps with them in the glow of the northern lights. The rescue helicopter is deployed to fight the burning tundra and in Disko Bay marine biologists are exploring the mysterious Greenland shark.
