In 2011, a crew of scientists and artists boarded a three mast schooner and set out for the rugged fjords of Northeast Greenland. Their mission? Simply to explore. Encounters with polar bears, new species, and lingering existential questions are accompanied in this documentary by an eclectic soundtrack featuring Mozart and Metallica.

In September we launch a new Music Movies series that invites Seattle musicians and bands to create a live score for a film of their choosing.
