TRACK OUR TRAIL AS WE CROSS THE ATLANTIC AND CONTINUE UP INTO THE ARCTIC CIRCLE
Greenland, a country famous for strong Inuit hunters, home to an incredibly resilient people who have built a society where most could not. European and yet socially and culturally world’s apart. Isolated on the peripheries of Europe but now very much digitally connected. The world’s largest island, with a population of just 56,000 mostly huddled along its Western fjord-lined coast.
A TWO YEAR PROJECT
As part of a two-year project we will be filming a documentary about Greenland and the wider Arctic region. An adventurous documentary with a simple mission, to learn about Greenland in its current moment.
This year we will be sailing along the West Coast of Greenland meeting people from villages and outposts from the South as far as North as Thule, well into the Arctic Circle above 77° latitude. We hope to better understanding Inuit culture, today’s way of life and how they are adapting to environmental, social and economic changes. What can we learn from the adaptations? And what comparisons can be drawn with our own Western society?
OH CAPTAIN MY CAPTAIN
Jamie Young, our Ship Captain and the visionary behind this documentary, is a free-spirited lifelong adventurer from the West Coast of Ireland. Our crew of skippers, divers and cinematographers will rely on Jamie’s experience in the Arctic waters where his vessel the Killary Flyer will provide a platform for filming as we go. With no roads connecting its villages and with the ice ‘highways’ being used less and less due to thinning ice, by boat allows us to meet communities in villages and outposts along most of the Western coastline.
