"No matter what the weather is, we always have a will to live."

~Kaaleeraq Mathaeussen, Inuit fisherman

In a village of 4,000 people in northern Greenland, the sun rises for the first time after 43 days of total darkness. Juxtaposed against the beauty of this landscape of limited light, Return of the Sun explores the plight of an Inuit fisherman who finds himself adapting to the changing climate. Although his livelihood and that of his Inuit community is changing, the film shows their spirit remains rooted in kindness and of possibility.

    Sorry for ever complaining about our weather. And for not recycling more, because they are the ones directly affected.
