GREENLAND – AN EXPEDITION ABOARD SAILING VESSEL GAMBO
Year of production : 2010
GRANT REDVERS & PASCALE OTIS
After many years navigating the high southern latitudes, the yacht Gambo, owned by Welsh glaciologist Dr Alun Hubbard, set a course north in 2009 and sailed to the west coast of Greenland to support a number of climate change research projects. This is a scientific adventure “Gambo Style”: big plans, limited funding, a mixed bunch of sailors, scientists and climbers and a roguish Gambo spirit that somehow keeps it all afloat.
The film was also made in “Gambo Style”: big plans, absolutely no funding, a mixed bunch of sailors, scientists and climbers that don’t mind being filmed, and a lot of patience for the video editing software that somehow made it possible to make something out of this adventure!
