IFI FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL 2016: JOURNEY TO GREENLAND

Sébastien Betbeder

(Le voyage au Groenland)

Book Tickets

Director Sébastien Betbeder will partake in a post-screening Q&A.

Thomas (Thomas Blanchard) and Thomas (Thomas Scimeca), two less-than-successful actors, leave Paris on a whim for the frozen wilderness of Greenland – specifically the remote town of Kullorsuaq where one of their father’s happens to live – in Sébastien Betbeder’s contemplative comedy of self-discovery.

Air-dropped into an Inuit community, the boys discover the charms of the local customs, while the stresses of their imposing new environment puts their friendship to the test. Journey to Greenland continues Betbeder’s fascination with the continent of Greenland following the IFI French Film Festival screening of Inupiluk in 2014.

Director’s note: Primarily a melancholy comedy, the characters travel and, through displacement, their moods and bittersweet dreams are unearthed.
