The Expedition to the End of the World , movie

Plot Summary:
A three-masted schooner carries a variety of intrepid Danes: a geologist, geographer, geochemist, marine biologist (the only woman), and a couple of artists. Their ship skims through the shimmering waters of the fjords of northeastern Greenland – one of the most remote regions on earth – now accessible for a few short weeks each year, due to the effects of climate change. Huge icebergs break apart before them, a vast double rainbow stretches across the horizon, and a polar bear seems to appear from nowhere. Their stunning surroundings inspire talk of Stendhal syndrome, a physical reaction to extreme beauty. And their fascinating musings range from the philosophical to the scientific, from the idealistic to the fatalistic. As the geologist notes: "Life on earth will survive us. We're but a parenthesis in the development of the earth. And most likely a very short parenthesis."
