The Expedition to the End of the World

Ekspeditionen til verdens ende

Sailing on a boat reminiscent of expeditions during past centuries, a group of Danes venture to the north of Greenland to study the natural habitat of the area and discover places where no man has ever set foot on. With Mozart’s Requiem as its jumping off point and Metallica as its final destination, this witty and over-ambitious journey gets a kick out of its own far-fetched goal to give answers to existential questions that preoccupy mankind since day one, stretching to today’s concerns over climate change.
