The multi-award-winning North of the Sun (Nordfor Sola) is an enlightening and entertaining film that follows the journey of two young Norwegian men who spent nine months in the isolated and uninhabited bay of a remote, Arctic island. There they built a cabin out of driftwood and other cast-off materials that washed up on shore, ate expired food the stores would otherwise have thrown away, and surfed in freezing Atlantic waters.
As part of the University of Tasmania's Sustainability Month, North of the Sun will be screening on Wednesday 12 August from 5.30 to 7pm at the Stanley Burbury Theatre on the Sandy Bay campus. Admission is free.
