Village At The End Of The World Review

Image for Village At The End Of The World

Niaqornat, western Greenland. The inhabitants of this tiny fishing village, reliant on tourism and increasingly put-upon, are the subject matter of Sarah Gavron's fly-on-the-frozen-wall doc; Annie, the elderly sage, and restless, teenaged shop assistant Lars among them.


Charting the efforts of four of the 59 residents of the Greenland fishing village of Niaqornat to avoid ecological, economic and emotional meltdown, this beautiful documentary discreetly examines how tradition and progress are harnessed to ensure a viable future.

Visually immaculate and thought-provoking stuff.
