The Fight For Greenland

The Fight For Greenland

The world’s largest island has been part of Denmark since 172, but a significant majority of the 56.000 inhabitants now want independence. They feel their culture and language are threatened and are the main reasons for the many suicides among young people. But the Danish speaking Greenlanders feel discriminated and want to keep the ties to Denmark.

The film follows four strong, young Greenlanders, who each in their own way insist on taking responsibility for the future of their country. The documentary explores the difficult balance between the fight to self-determination and xenophobic nationalism between traditional culture and globalization.
