The film, directed by Reinout Oerlemans, tells the true story of the:
… legendary failed mission of the late sixteenth century Dutch flotilla trying to find a trading route to Asia across the North Pole. The ship crew, who got stuck in the ice of Nova Zembla and had to survive the dark coldness of winter in the most gruesome of circumstances. source
The film looks pretty good, judging by the official trailer. Hopefully it will be released in the United States sometime soon. 🙂
