My ship is loaded with...

The melting of Greenland's ice sheets has opened up new, unexplored fjords. The schooner Activ is on a voyage to explore and witness these massive effects of global warming. Onboard is a somewhat unusual mix of scientists and artists. This ecletic blend of natural sciences and humanities results both in playful merrymaking, dialectic reasoning and existential philosophy. While in awe of the beautiful untouched arctic landscapes, the crew is also continuously reminded of the catastrophic effects of climate change.
