The Land of Human Beings

Anne Regitze Wivel, Denmark, 2006

81 min.DK/Documentary

In her personal account and with a passion for detail, filmmaker Anne Wivel examines the complexity of Greenland, the great land in the North with its both breathtaking and cruel nature. The film gives us an impression of the scars that have been inflicted upon the Greenlandic people as a consequence of their colonial past. Who are the people who live in Greenland and how do they see themselves and their future?
