When you think of Greenland, what comes to mind? Slaughtered whales and alcoholism? Ice? That’s about all I’ve got.
But then again, I’m working with very limited data here – my concept of Greenland has been shaped almost entirely by that episode of Borgen when Birgitte goes to the country and is heartbroken by all the despair she witnesses.
I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that there’s a bit more to the country than that. On that note, good news, folks: the Greenland Eyes International Film Festival is coming to Copenhagen next week!
The festival is doing a Nordic tour over the next few months, making stops in Greenland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Faroe Islands.
On September 18, the festival will kick off at 7pm with Nuumioq (6.8 on IMDB).
