Sketches of Siberia

Documentary, 2015, 74 min.

In 1913, the Norwegian arctic explorer Fridtjof Nansen took part in an expedition to establish a trade route. He sailed from Scandinavia via the Arctic Ocean to the Siberian interior. En route, he took photographs and kept a diary. Using themes like colonialism, mineral exploitation and demographic and geopolitical developments, the film holds up his observations to the present. This associative documentary in the form of a road/boat movie looks for the human dimension, with its precarious balance.
