The Visitors (Co-Production)


Zdenka, a young anthropologist, arrives with her family to the town Longyearbyen in the Svalbard archipelago in order to study how life changes in the polar regions.

She soon finds out that it’s not only the icebergs and permafrost but also diversity of the local community that are at stake here.


The questions Zdenka poses to her respondents soon become also her personal quest and she inevitably has to face the question of how much she should allow herself to get involved with the place that she was only supposed to observe.
