Our take

The film debut of composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (Sicario) gives us a vision of Antarctica as we’ve never experienced it before. His wonderful score, which complements his arresting Super 8 footage, creates a haunting soundscape that transports us to a different world that exists at the edges of ours.
