FILM Village at the End of the World - Tuesday 4 June

New Dogwoof documentary shows at Cinema City 

Fascinated by the resilience of the few remaining polar communities, Brick Lane director Sarah Gavron and her cameraman partner David Katznelson spent almost three years filming in Niaqornat, a remote Inuit hamlet in northern Greenland with just 59 inhabitants.

Under government threat of relocation if their numbers fell below 50, the locals were determined to reopen a local fish factory in order to stem the slow exodus of their youngsters, and vowed to battle on against an unsympathetic bureaucracy “until the last man’s left standing”. The stark beauty of their harsh landscape and their equally harsh way of life – they rely entirely on hunting and fishing, and the long winter months are totally without daylight – contrast with their quirky humour and robust traditions.Village at the End of the World is a portrait of a traditional community struggling against the challenges of globalisation and climate change.

Opens 4 June, 6.30pm. Book online on Cinema City website or call the Box Office: 0871 902 5724 (10p a minute from a landline)
