The Visitors + Q&A with Zdenka Sokolíčková
November 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Zdenka, a young anthropologist, moves with her husband and three sons to Svalbard, Norway, to study how life changes for the inhabitants of the world’s northernmost town. Longyearbyen, originally a mining town, is now a growing tourist destination where everyone can come and settle as long as they have a job and a place to live. Set in an idyllic snowy landscape, this is love at first sight for the whole family until Zdenka discovers that more than icebergs and permafrost are vanishing in the Arctic. A beautifully shot portrait of a polar microcosm offering a raw glimpse into the contemporary globalised world.
