A Polar Year

(Sundance Film Festival) This slice of life film takes you to a remote location in freezing cold Greenland – Tiniteqiilaq.  There are only 80 villagers and a Danish primary school teacher is there to teach the kids his language, but not to learn theirs.  The director plays with the blurred line of documentary and fiction as some of the sceenes are obviously set up.  But there is no mistaking the beauty and culture of this community.  It’s interesting and opens you to a world you wouldn’t have discovered otherwise and can lead to some discussion.  Not sure I’d call it date night worthy as much watch it with a nice glass of wine when you can stream it.
