As both director and the DP, Samuel Collardey takes us into a Danish teacher's first year in Tiniteqiilaq, a tiny fishing village in Greenland. Danish Anders Hvidegaard struggles to fit in until he begins to bond with a young Tunumiit boy, Asser, and slowly immerses himself into the indigenous culture and its daily rhythms. With breathtaking cinematography and mostly verite scenes, A Polar Year is a standout documentary that playfully, and smartly, blurs the lines between fiction and non-fiction film making.
