DOCHOUSE PRESENTS: Village At The End of The World + Director Q&A

Against the backdrop of Northern Greenland's exhilarating scenery, meet the inhabitants of Niaqornat. All 59 of them.

Among them are Lars, the town's only teenager and the only male in a community of hunters who wouldn't dream of killing animals; Karl, the huntsman who has never really acknowledged that Lars is his son; Ilanngauq, the outsider who moved to Niaqornat after meeting his wife online; and Annie, the elder who remembers the ways of the Shamen and a time when the lights were fuelled by seal blubber.

Facing numerous ecological and economic obstacles the remote community is more fragile than its hardy inhabitants, and in the face of melting ice, lack of government support and a dwindling population, individuals must come up with some creative measures to save their town.

Sarah Gavron's astute portrait of one of the remotest spots on earth is at once visually breathtaking and a dramatic wake-up call to a dilemma an increasing number of small communities are facing worldwide.
