a cold colony

1982 - 34 min.

In Greenland, officially a Danish province, the Inuît people struggle to adapt to modern times.
We meet a fifteen year old boy in the capital Nuuk; sealers; a teacher and a politician.
There is an undertone of nostalgia for the 'unspoiled' times of the past and there is the awe for the overwhelming nature.
The people are caugth between two cultures.
Final exam-film for the School for Journalism, broadcasted by VARA television.
