Description:
In a place where the last ice age still prevails, a group of geologists is going to spend a few weeks in High Arctic in Spitzberg. In the sediment layers they are looking or new evidence on the mechanisms of climate changes during last 100 000 years, which include several enormous ice ages on European continent. This expedition is their greatest dream. No one can predict what will happen hundreds of miles away from the nearest habitation. Here we can understand the basic theme of the film, the eternal passion of a scientist to look for new peaces of knowledge even risking their health and sometimes their life. They have to worry about the roaming polar bears. That is why they have to carry rifles all the time and they have to know how to shoot – to kill. In these circumstances a cool scientist has to face his own concept of life. In High Arctic you can have a real look into the motifs that have carried you this far. They are true descendants of the old explorers.
