The ultimate kings of Thulé

De Jean Malaurie

Synopsis

In 1951, Jean Malaurie, a geographer and anthropologist, led a fourteen-month solo expedition to Greenland. He stayed in the region of Thule, a hamlet of 300 inhabitants at the northernmost part of the planet.There he witnessed an irreparable tragedy when the Americans built a nuclear military base during the Korean war.

In 1968, a plane crashed on the floe. It was loaded with four bombs, which were pulverized. Jean Malaurie went immediately back to Thule. There he shot a documentary film to show the world the everyday life of a legendary people who might disappear altogether.
