The Village At The End Of The World review

British director Sarah Gavron's sweet follow up to Brick Lane travels much further away from home to focus on an Inuit community.

Welcome to the remote village of Niaqornat in chilly North West Greenland. Population: 59.

The camera dips in and out of the villagers’ lives with leisurely ease while chatty interviews reveal how their livelihoods are under threat.

OK, so not a lot actually happens – the highlight is a boatload of tourists pondering inbreeding – but it’s an affectionate portrayal of a way of life adapting to survive.
