• The easiest ice to be melted is the ice on the ground, the hardest ice to be melted is the one in the heart of Man. Only by melting the ice in the heart of Man does Man have a chance to change and begin using his knowledge wisely.

The film

The documentary film Stella Polaris* Ulloriarsuaq follows the Light-Art-Project in Greenland from beginning to end in portrait-style. Using the latest in technology, budding director Yatri N. Niehaus, in his first solo attempt at a full- scale documentary, captures every moment of the project in this unique form of photographic art. Besides the fascinating shots of Greenland’s unparalleled glaciers and icebergs, Yatri interviews Greenland’s Light- ambassadors, who have much to say to the world about the disappearance of the eternal ice. As it stands now, the documentary Stella Polaris* Ulloriarsuaq is expected to be about 30 minutes. A full-length film is in the planning stages.

“The Greenland ice cap stretched many thousands of kilometers before me. When I stepped upon it for the first time, it moved under my feet, making loud crackling sounds. In that moment, it became clear to me—the indes- cribable connection—of how the changes that are happening in Greenland are linked to everything and everyone in the world. If more people were able to have this experience, it could possibly create a lasting change in their relation- ship with the nature that surrounds us all. Still, not everyone can be there—seeing, hearing. I believe that art, especially film, has the potential of taking people along on the journey and to contemplate our role in the world.” Yatri N. Niehaus

The film will be published in 2015.
