Antarctic Traces

Short Documentary Film, AT/CA 2019, 30 min, eOF
Program: Innovatives Kino Programm 5

Barren snow-covered mountains that jut from the sea. Rusted shipwrecks and weathered factory ruins: a landscape without people, but with the things they have left behind that bear witness to the horrific whaling industry. A subtle-spherical text-image composition about South Georgia, an island group of the Antarctic—a stretch of coast into which humanity’s devastating overexploitation has been inscribed.
