On Sunday, February 27, 2022, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark attended the premiere of Against the Ice.
Based on the 1957 novel by the late Mr. Ejnar Mikkelsen and written for the screen by actor, Mr. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Against the Ice tells the dramatic story of the 1909 Danish Arctic Expedition led by Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen. The purpose of the expedition was to disprove the United States’ claim to Northeast Greenland. This claim was based on the assumption that Greenland was broken up into two different pieces of land.
Leaving his crew behind with the ship, Mikkelsen embarks on a journey across the ice with his inexperienced crew member, Iver Iversen. The two men succeed in finding the proof that Greenland is one island, but returning to the ship takes longer and is much harder than expected.
Battling extreme hunger, fatigue, and a polar bear attack, they finally arrive to find their ship crushed in the ice and the camp abandoned. Hoping to be rescued, they now must fight to stay alive. As the days grow longer, their mental hold on reality starts to fade, breeding mistrust and paranoia, a dangerous cocktail in their fight for survival.
Against the Ice premiere’s on March 2, 2022 on Netflix.
