On Wednesday May 16th 2012, Ap Verheggen and Svebor Kranjc will present the world’s first screening of the documentary ‘IceBerg Riders’. Ap Verheggen, artist and filmmaker, is Cultural Ambassador of UNESCO-IHE
Many years of Arctic filming, interviewing and traveling in a 52 minutes, unique documentary. In 2012 the film will be presented on documentary festivals worldwide.
Verheggen and his team traveled for many years trough the Arctic World and discovered that no other region in the world could be a better example for the link between culture and climate. This unique film shows the transformation of Inuit culture that have to cope with climate change, as they always did before.
Ap Verheggen: ‘Climate Change = Culture Change’
Together with the cool(E)motion team, Verheggen highlighted this link by realizing a huge art project . The realisation of this project also had to cope with unforeseen circumstances. A project overruled by reality. The only way that this project succeeded was through its creative and positive approach.The project got worldwide attention by all media.
The film and the art project are the basis for project SunGlacier.
