Village at the End of the World

UK, 2013, Colour, 76 min

What would you do if you were 16, lived in the most remote village in the world, and were the only teenager? What would you do if your biological father lived next door, yet never acknowledged your existence? Well, Lars is surprisingly upbeat about it. Welcome to the world of high-speed internet and door to door sewage collection, of polar bear hunts, and the summer dips in the melting ocean. Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) spent a year in Greenland, and delivered this extraordinary documentary.
