About this video
After a century of knowledge we have arrived here, now.
A beautiful and poetic profile of the Arctic archipelago Svalbard, which over the past 100 years has been increasingly associated with developments in climate science. Its position high-up in the Arctic Circle has made the chain of islands a key site of interest in the study of temperature dynamics and its impact on the fragile Arctic region.
‘Cursed by resource and conflict’
Through narration and beautiful imagery, the film traces the island’s history, composed from the turbulent consequences of global politics and the intensifying effects of man-made climate change.
