Arctic Spleen


Arctic Spleen is a personal intimate journey inside the Greenlandic juvenile world where nature, violence, boredom and a strong cultural legacy have been claiming for decades hundreds of young lives. In East Greenland, 20% of young people aged between 15 and 25 try to end their lives every year. 2% of them succeed. The personal experiences of Ole, Elvira, Hans and Kaleraaq, who survived several attempts, are not single isolated stories but the mirror of the fears of a huge part of young Greenlanders inclined to commit suicide.
