‘Against the Ice’ is a historical survival drama about a 1909 Danish expedition to resolve an international land dispute in northeastern Greenland.
The film is a real-life story of two men at the mercy of the unforgiving elements, of hunger and illness, possible attack and encroaching madness, that can be so seriously deprived of tension.
About ‘Against the Ice’
‘Against the Ice’ is a Netflix’s adaptation of Danish arctic explorer and writer Ejnar Mikkelsen's posthumously published book Two Against the Ice.
It will tell the story of Mikkelsen’s expedition into Greenland in 1909, which spent three arduous years securing proof that the northeastern half of Greenland was not split by a waterway and hence was impregnable to American attempts to claim it.
Ludvig Mylius-earlier Erichsen's voyage in 1906 had ended in disaster. But, according to a diary and map discovered by Mikkelsen, Mylius-Erichsen buried his definitive findings in a cairn erected in a secluded part of the foreboding countryside.
Those documents were crucial in resolving any territorial disputes between Denmark and the United States.
