Program 2018

Twenty-two thousand six hundred kilometers. That is the length of the Russian coastline of the Arctic Ocean. The border between life and the eternal cold.  THE WAY TO THE ARCTIC offers an exclusive perspective on the history of how Russia took a leading role in Arctic exploration:  the reclaiming of the Northern Sea Route, the launch of the first drifting research station, victorious expeditions to the North Pole – as well as the establishment of a fleet of nuclear submarines.

Each stage of “the Arctic project” started from the only ice-free port in Northern Russia:  Murmansk. The 100-year history of the city is inseparably connected to the ambitions of the Russian part of the Arctic region. Rich with previously unseen archival footage, THE WAY TO THE ARCTIC tells the story of the price the country paid for these ambitions.

Introduction with director present before both screenings.
