This is the UK Premiere of Carlos Casas’ complete multi award-winning END Trilogy. The trilogy is dedicated to extreme and inhospitable environments on the planet. From whale hunters of Siberia, to fishermen of the Aral Sea, and to hermits of Patagonia, these documentary films are anthropological portraits of indigenous peoples and places on the distant peripheries of civilisation. Casas’ epic, award-winning work is a lasting cinematic testimony to remote ways of living which are quickly disappearing.
