The promise of a new smelting plant by the American aluminum company Alcoa once stoked hope for new jobs and opportunities for the youth of Maniitsoq, a whaling village in coastal Greenland. However, in the decade since Alcoa’s announcement, no factory has materialized. Facing economic uncertainty, the Maniitsoq community discovers alternative financial opportunities in unexpected ways.

Join us for a Q&A with filmmakers Sidse Torstholm Larsen and Sturla Pilskog after the screening!
