The Future is the North

Film festival focusing on Greenland
at ZKM_Media Theatre, ZKM_Lecture hall, 10am.–6pm.

Information auf Deutsch

Shifting to the center of world attention in 2008 and 2009 is the significance of Arctic and Antarctic development, especially that of Greenland. Climate change is particularly clear on the Danish island – glaciers are retreating and flora and fauna are undergoing drastic changes. Tom Høyem, the last Minister of Greenland in the Danish government and now headmaster at the European School Karlsruhe draws attention also to Greenland’s vast natural resources and thereby to the strategically important significance of this region.

In the context of a film festival with events and films, ZKM and the European School Karlsruhe take a look at the world’s largest island and the changes global warming has set off there.

An event by the European School in Karlsruhe and the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe.

The detailed program of the festival is only available in German
