Village at the end of the World

Sarah Gavron, Denmark, 2011

78 min.DK/Documentary

Told over the course of a year, this is the story of every small community across the world. Niaqornat just happens to be in Northwest Greenland, one of the remotest spots on earth. "On the Edge" is a witty, surprising and ultimately feel good portrait of an isolated village consisting of 59 people and 100 sledge dogs, all surviving against the odds.
