Into Twin Galaxies - A Greenland Epic
Rafael 3Fri, May 4 9:15 PM
Prepare to be awed and humbled as you watch pro kayakers Erik Boomer and Ben Stookesberry embark on a 1,000-kilometer “most epic expedition ever” with polar expert Sarah McNair Landry. Their objective is running an unknown river canyon, only known from satellite photos, to the Arctic Ocean. But before then, they’ll have a wee “ice cap challenge” that requires hauling kayaks, 45 days of food and additional equipment from Greenland’s east coast to its west—sometimes on foot, sometimes kite-skiing. En route, they witness some drastic evidence of climate change in the area’s hottest summer ever, though it's worth noting that in this particular location that means you might still freeze to death. Other thrills include precarious travel in ice tunnels beneath collapsible snow bridges, not to mention a few off-the-chart kayaking runs over frigid waterfalls. It’s a grueling journey of crazy risks and phenomenal beauties that’s captured to stunning effect by director Jochen Schmoll. | CALIFORNI
