Thank global warming for one of the year’s most beautiful and entertaining films. The frozen fjords of Northeast Greenland are blocked by a maze of impassable inlets, leaving the Earth’s oldest terrain untouched by modern man. But as the North Pole slowly melts, a narrow path now opens for a few weeks every year. In the spirit of Columbus, a motley crew of artists and scientists set sail on an exploratory mission. With heavy metal blasting from the deck of their majestic wooden schooner, it’s clear this isn’t your typical expedition. High science and hilarious hijinks play out in equal measure against stunning icescapes. Palpable awe accompanies the discovery of new species and insightfully differing riffs on the meaning of life, but all with a wry, Herzogian sense of humour and otherworldly cinematography. A lucid observation on man’s relationship with nature, this fascinating voyage sets an epic course for adventure. Myrocia Watamaniuk, Hot Docs
