Ep. 2 - Sailing Ice

The Polar Sea

Described Video:
It is late July and the Northwest Passage is still choked with ice. In the small village of Ilulissat, Greenland, a motley collection of Arctic voyagers assembles to prepare for their expeditions while they wait for the sea to melt. Finally setting sail, they must learn to navigate both Arctic waters and the discomforts of long confinement in a small vessel. This episode features a haunting performance by Norwegian Terje Isungset on instruments made of ice.
