Three men and one woman travel 4,000 km in a small open boat “the Greenlandic way” – the hard way. They travel with no special equipment or protection from the outside world. Their mission is to observe and record life in the High Arctic so that the voices of its northernmost inhabitants are heard. 

“Avannaa is a Greenlandic reconnaissance fact-finding boat expedition. It does not have a plot or pre-approved scenario. From the Heart of the Arctic, Uummannaq, we will boat towards Siorapaluk, Etah, and further North. On our way, we will observe and document the changes in ecosystem, and life in general. We will do it to make sure that the voices of northernmost people and animals inhabiting Avannaa are heard.”
