Review of “On Thin Ice” (2020)

Moving picture, 52 minutes

Seen in 2021.

Seen with Swedish-language narration on SVT.

40 years of climate change in Siberia.

It’s a bit like the opening chapters of Japan Sinks (1973): Sudden gaps in the landscape with more to come. Appropriately, the Japanese research team is very cute: Mosquito nets, gloves, gear that is both simple and precisely engineered, and methodical English.
