Latitude Full Film: An All Women's Ski and Sail Expedition

By Stio Mountain on

LATITUDE is a poetic short documentary film that follows four daring young women to the 79th parallel, under 700 miles from the North Pole to rediscover themselves amidst Svalbard's epic arctic ocean sailing, ice mountain climbs, and ski descents. 

The Mission: In May 2018, four ladies left the routine rhythms of their everyday lives to live on a 50ft sailboat for a 10-day ski, sail and mountaineering expedition to explore the far reaching fjords between the northern islands of Svalbard, Norway.

The Location: The remote wild of Svalbard, Norway is the world's northernmost inhabited land mass - one that is covered in snow and glacial ice and rises 4000+ feet above sea level. A rich ecosystem of polar bears, arctic foxes, walruses, seals, whales and birds thrive on the islands.
