“Arctic Uncharted” – Crossing the Arctic in an inflatable boat
In the summer of 2021, an inflatable boat (RIB) will make a unique journey sailing into unknown waters and exploring new routes created by climate change.
For 7,000 Nautical Miles, from London to Nome in Alaska, it will cross the legendary North-West Passage and the Bering Strait. The crew, experienced seafarers, scientists and filmmakers, test their limits in search of their own Ithaca.
The production team will board for 2 months, sailing 10 hours daily, shooting the film “Arctic Uncharted” in order to fuel the debate on climate change.
Melting ice in the Arctic is not just about icebergs and glaciers. It’s about radical changes in ecosystems and their impact on animal populations and local communities. It’s a preview of our future, a call for personal consciousness and social change.
The project is one of 15 that the Documentary Masterschool Campus (DMC) has chosen for 2020, a synergy that paves the way for international co-production and wide-ranging screening of the film.
