From 2003 to 2005, British artist/filmmaker David Buckland organized three sailing expeditions to the High Arctic as part of a series of collaborations between artists, educators and scientists, designed to create public awareness of global climate change. David Hinton’s film captures those expeditions, immersing us in the Arctic’s otherworldly sights, sounds and silences as Buckland and his companions – including composer Max Eastley, photographer Alex Hartley, writer Ian McEwan and sculptor Rachel Whiteread – explore the dramatic landscape.
