US Premiere

Quebecers Nicolas and Guillaume start one of the longest wilderness exhibitions in Canadian history at the upper edge of Nunavut, Canada’s newest and biggest province. They launch near northern Greenland and pull their sleds 1,000 miles south across primitive islands and heaving sea ice. Then begins a grueling, 1,200-mile paddle upstream into cascading rivers, where they meet their bikes and finish the expedition with a gorgeous 2,500-mile ride to southern Ontario. The journey provides a humbling and refreshing perspective on how people dream of their next adventures, far from well-documented routes. Subtitled.

Directed by Laurent Poliquin
