Introduction

45 mins, Director: Rick Harvie & Keith Parsons, NZ.
The story of four young explorers journeying 560km across the Greenland ice cap in honour of Fridtjof Nansen’s first crossing 130 years earlier. The team included Wanaka trailblazer Brando Yelavich, NZ endurance athlete Hollie Woodhouse, respected international videographer Keith Parsons and intrepid Australian adventurer Bridget Kruger. The team took 29 days to ski across the ice cap dragging 60kg sleds behind them.
