THE FIGHT FOR GREENLAND

Kenneth Sorento 2020 1h 36m

Synopsis:

The film offers a unique insight into the heated debate about independence, language and identity that rages in modern-day Greenland. What does the future hold for Greenland? Should Greenland become a sovereign state or on the contrary strengthen its ties to Denmark? We follow four strong-willed and dynamic young greenlanders who are fighting for a better Greenland, but disagree on which direction their country should take.
