The Expedition to the End of the World (Full Frame)

In the treacherous, freezing waters of northern Greenland, a motley collection of scientists and artists aboard a restored schooner set out for parts unknown, engaging in equal measures of exploration and whimsy. Along the journey, their encounters run the full spectrum from dramatic to banal, alarming to serene, and are accompanied by an equally wide-ranging soundtrack. An arctic study in contrasts emerges: the physical tension of the ship as it strains against unforgiving ice floes is juxtaposed with free-wheeling banter and improvisation. Despite the isolation of the vast and barren surroundings, quarters are close and methodologies clash. Throughout the otherworldly adventure, viewers see images and hear musings that challenge and astound, not least of which are the discovery of a new species and the exploits of a snack-seeking polar bear.

The film starts at 11:00 pm (so go ahead and take the next day off work, ha). I’m posting meetup times 30 minutes prior to film start as there will be lines, etc. This film is part of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, running that weekend from Thursday through Sunday. Individual tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased in advance beginning Mon Mar 25 at 11:00 am: https://store.fullframefest.org.

    A diverse crew of artists and scientists and their differing philosophies on life – topics include: global warming, the meaning of life, and the awe inspiring beauty of nature. The Greenland ice fjord scenery is incredible and the cinematography outstanding.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
