North of the Sun
Two Norwergian film students spend nine months in the isolated and uninhabited bay of a remote, arctic island by the coast of Northern-Norway, facing nothing but the vast Atlantic Ocean. There, they build a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that wash up on shore, survive off expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away, and experience the true meaning of “living off the grid”. A feel-good adventure story that leaves you wanting more – don’t miss it! Watch the trailer.
