Half a year in the northernmost settlements in the world. How do the people live up there? How are their daily lives different in polar night and polar day? A long planned film project on mind, I travelled to Qaanaaq in January 2022. Shortly after arrival through, this film project was cancelled, and I had a choice to make – to fly home, or to stay and see what happens. I decided to stay… In a place on earth, where I neither spoke nor understood the local language, and where finding a place to stay is a major undertaking… Many unforeseen things happened and the following months passed with lots of new, interesting, exciting experiences and adventures. The film that will tell this story of living with what life throws at you, is being edited at the moment.
