Cage presenterer: Guilt Trip
GUILT TRIP - A climate change film with a skiing problem
A group of skiers wish to claim a first ski descent on Greenland's second highest peak. The only thing greater than their desire is the size of their carbon footprint to get there. Loaded with guilt, they decide to bring along renowned glaciologist, Alun Hubbard, who’s hypothesis, if proven, could rewrite popular projections of global sea-level rise. However, the entire expedition is put in question when they arrive in Greenland and discover their objective is beyond the range of all available aircraft.
The white expanse of Greenland is a dream destination for many adventurers and explorers but a place very few truly get to know. UiT's resident glaciologist and adventurer - Prof. Alun Hubbard - is one those people. He has spent 15 years studying, sailing & exploring the world's largest and majestic, but surprisingly vulnerable, ice-covered island. In 2016 he joined a group of skiers and filmmakers attempting to ski the highest peak in Greenland. The attempt became more of a lesson on effects of climate change than both the scientist and the skiers bargained for.
Alun Hubbard will introduce the film himself this evening at Verdensteatret, and provide insight into the current state of the Greenland ice sheet. He will answer questions after the viewing.
The screening is free of charge and presented by CAGE (Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate).
