Movie Info

A real adventure film - for the 21st century. On a three-mast schooner packed with artists, scientists and ambitions worthy of Noah or Columbus, we set off for the end of the world: the rapidly melting massifs of North-East Greenland. An epic journey where the brave sailors on board encounter polar bear nightmares, Stone Age playgrounds and entirely new species. But in their encounter with new, unknown parts of the world, the crew of scientist and artists also confronted the existential questions of life. Curiosity, grand pathos and a liberating dose of humour come together in a superbly orchestrated film where one iconic image after the other seduces us far beyond the historical footnote that is humanity. A film conceived and brought to life on a grand scale - a long forgotten childhood dream lived out by grown artists and scientists. (C) Official Site

  • It might not be quite the "adventure film" that the press materials promise, but it's a diverting enough variation on familiar environmental-crisis studies.

  • Dencik's travelogue reveals a journey with curious traces of the past, eye-popping encounters with a wild present and ... a weighted reminder of our future as stewards of the Earth.

  • The movie reveals some of the most stunning landscape cinematography imaginable, while everyone on the isolated ship waxes philosophical - as who would not?

  • All on board are curiously resigned to mankind's death by environment, and take the long view that another life form will one day take our place.

    Aug 21, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • "Expedition" is like a stoned camping trip to an unimaginably distant location, where your companions are a group of brilliant intellectuals, artists and scientists.

  • [A] playful but ominously open-ended documentary about a motley crew of Danes headed to Greenland on a schooner.
