Original score by Biggi Hilmars to the feature documentary by Swan Films for BBC4.
This feature-length film tells the story of a typical day in the life of an Inuit hunter in Greenland, as he travels across the stunning arctic landscape with his dog sled, fishes through the sea ice, and finally builds an igloo. While Inuit now live in permanent settlements, igloos are still constructed by hunters for shelter while out in the wilderness. Documenting the ingenious craft of igloo-building before it’s too late, this film is an extraordinary and poetic sensory immersion in the landscape of ice and snow: an elegy to a world that is melting away.
