About the film: On its vast lunar landscape, the main protagonist of the Arctic is Ice. Four visitors arrive one spring to camp on the ice sheet. Aside from them, there is no other life on the horizon. The visitors are scientists who drill ice cores containing decades of climate history. Utuqaq is a planetary story of the Arctic. It speaks in place of Nature, capturing an otherworldly landscape and that which is being lost.
