Bear Island

  • Norway
Audio Tracks 

Documentary made by three brothers on a surf trip on one of the coldest islands on earth: Bear Island. They cross country ski in a white, barren landscape. Each has a sled in tow with a surfboard perched on top. The snow whips them as they set up camp in preparation for the day ahead. The next morning, they hit the virgin waves where no one has surfed before. But one brother must stay ashore, vigilant, poised, with a rifle should Bjørnøya‘s natural predator, the Polar Bear emerge.
