Radio essay, documentary 38 min. NTR 2016. nominated for Prix Europa 2016
Different personal stories about the meaning of the north. For some the north is source of inspiration, a safe haven, a place of gruesome dreams, an economic model, a difference in height, and at times the north can be straightforward violent and cruel. Ultimately this radio story hopes to arrive at that place where one can not go north. At that point where the earth rotates around its axis; the North Pole itself.
