Presented by Adorama, Sony Artisan Chris Burkard will give a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Under An Arctic Sky. Watch the short behind-the-scenes cut of the film before we dive into the process behind bringing the full-length film to life! Followed by an open discussion format Q&A.
The film follows six surfers along with adventure photographer Chris Burkard and filmmaker Ben Weiland as they seek out unknown swell in the remote fjords of Iceland's Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. Chartering a boat, they depart from Isafjordur on the cusp of the largest storm to make landfall in 25 years. With the knowledge that storms bring legendary swell the crew are optimistic, but face failure when the storm forces them back to shore. Making the decision to carry the expedition on by road, they experience the brutality of Iceland's winter and begin to question if searching out the unknown is worth risking their lives. Despite setbacks, the team pushes on and finds that uncertainty is the best ingredient for discovering the unimaginable.
Doors open at 6:30pm, event starts at 7pm. Tickets are $20.
