STELLA POLARIS VILORIARSUAQ
DIRECTOR YATRI N. NIEHAUS
DOCUMENTARY • 73 MINUTES • GREENLAND
The history of the world has been settling on the Greenlandic ice sheet for millions of years. Massive glaciers constantly unearth long gone states of the planet.
The Kalaallit people of Greenland have been inseparably connected to the eternal ice for millennia. In just a few short years, colonialism dramatically transitioned their culture to a modern life style. Today, as the foundation of their traditions is literally melting beneath their feet, two photographers seek to imprint on their images a message from a vanishing world.
Stella Polaris Ulloriarsuaq“ takes us on a cinematic meditation on the fast changes of our planet, constantly evolving around the Pole Star.
