Arctic films in January

Thursday 08. December 2016

We’re very happy to present the film exhibition «View From Up Here» at Northern Norway Art Museum. In collaboration with Anchorage Museum in Alaska, we’re launching a program of recent art, experimental and documentary films from the Arctic. We’ll be showing films from Alaska, Northern Norway, Finland, Russia and Greenland, all exploring places and people in the circumpolar north.

The outside view of the Arctic is a place of mythic notions and proportions. Many consider it wild, remote, untouched and unattainable – a place only attracting explorers, scientists and artists. But despite its mythology, the Arctic is not a land untouched. It is a place of human life and human imprint. The inside view of Arctic is a place of adaptation, complex landscapes and diverse people meeting new challenges of global dimensions. These films seek to tell stories from the demystified inside and show that «north» is relative to position and perspective.

The films will be shown continuously at the Northern Norway Art Museum from January 14th to February 28th with daily introductions at 4 pm during Tromsø International Film Festival and Arctic Frontiers. Several special screenings and events will be announced shortly.
