A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

There is a specific, special feeling that accompanies the first crunching steps onto untouched snow. Ironically, a sense of quiet. From start to finish, this film conjures that feeling, from the deck of a boat. You feel you are the only person in all of arctic Svalbard, surrounded by expansive landscapes frozen in time. Marcello Ercole’s cinematic wizardry takes you over the deep frigid waters and snow-streaked mountains, only to return you again to the creaking deck of the boat. Whether you want to set out on the open ocean—or keep your feet firmly planted on the ground—this film offers an inside look into one of the most remote and beautiful places on earth. Gorgeous!

Produced by Marcello Ercole
