SCREENING SELECTION 2022
Nominated for Best Feature Documentary
Director: Alexis Destoop
Language: English, Norwegian, Russian
Reporting from the future, an exploration around an unspecified border in the High North turns into a philosophical investigation of mankind and its environment. Assembled from personal experiences, collected testimonies and local stories, the film presents a journey through the contentious Norwegian-Russian borderland. Home to the indigenous Sami, it is a region where palpable climate shifts raise dreams of new economic prosperity and where remnants of past wars set the stage for new adversities. The film is a retro-futuristic science non-fiction, an anthropological document, a travelogue, a poem, a labyrinth.
