Landscapes at the World's Ends (2010) Order on DVD

A non-verbal visual journey to the polar regions of our planet portrayed through a triptych montage of photography and video.
Landscapes at the World's Ends is a multi-dimensional canvas of imagery recorded above the Arctic Circle and below the
Antarctic Convergence, viewed through the lens of whom is realistically an alien in this environment, the polar tourist.

Filmed during several artist residencies onboard three expedition vessels, New Zealand nature photographer and filmmaker Richard Sidey documents light and time in an effort to share his experiences and the beauty that exists over the frozen seas. Set to an ambient score by Norwegian Arctic based musician, Boreal Taiga, this experimental documentary transports us to the islands of South Georgia,
the Antarctic Peninsula, Greenland and Svalbard.
