Fram

A Film by Thomas Freundlich, Valtteri Raekallio

Synopsis

FRAM – FORWARD
Two friends journey to the end of the earth, in order to dance in the polar wilderness of Svalbard. En route, they explore our ideas of the Arctic, along with the grand questions of life and art. ‘Fram’ is a unique and engaging journey to a place where few have been – and even fewer have danced.
