There Will Be Some Who Will Not Fear Even That Void

There Will Be Some Who Will Not Fear Even That Void

This is a film about the future of our planet that turns the traditional environmental documentary on its head. Rather than looking at our influence on the environment, it examines the environment’s influence on us.

Shot during a 16 day voyage on a tall ship sailing around Norway’s remote Arctic islands, the documentary chronicles the bizarre, surreal and beautiful work of 20 artists living aboard.

While the footage is real, the plot ? inspired by the other-worldliness of the location and recent events in the Director’s own life ? is fictional. The Director imagines the artists as a team of specialists sent on a mission in the near future to rebuild the Arctic environment after it has been decimated by global warming. With no master plan, maps or blueprints, each artist recreates the Arctic of his or her own memories, fears, desires (and flawed) expectations.

… Even That Void is a cinematic essay that combines elements of science fiction and surrealism, art, ecology and environment. Oddly beautiful, deeply confounding, and often very funny, the film plays with the audience’s expectations with wit and gorgeous imagery.
