Cape Farewell’s film Art From The Arctic is now available on DVD, in NTSC format. Edited from over 200 hours of footage, this 60-minute film documents the Cape Farewell expeditions, which took world renowned artists and climate scientists into the High Arctic. Witness the artists’ response to the harsh environment and their take on the very visible impacts of climate change on the extraordinary yet vulnerable Arctic landscape.
The film Art From The Arctic was shown as part of Climate Chaos – a major season of BBC programmes on the science behind and issues surrounding climate change, and also screened in 2008 on the Sundance Channel in the USA. The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker David Hinton and produced by David Buckland.
Witness the artists’ response to the harsh environment, and their take on the impacts of climate change. Some were inspired to make instant artworks, carving optical ice lenses and cameras, making glacial projections, creating habitable snow-rooms, sketching, drawing and writing, whilst others quietly absorbed their surroundings, producing work on their return home. Enduring temperatures of -35°C, the stormy waters of ‘The Devil’s Dancefloor’ and the cramped conditions of nautical living, join them in their exploration of the extraordinary and vulnerable Arctic.
Art From The Arctic was shown as part of Art & Climate Change, Cape Farewell’s first major touring exhibition created in partnership with the Natural History Museum, and designed to deepen our understanding of climate change.
The DVD is currently out of stock.
