Virgil Films 2015 Film Roundup: Adventure/Cultural Documentaries

By December 29, 2015September 8th, 2016News, Uncategorized

Every once in a while, there are films that open our eyes to events and situations that we never knew existed. Documentaries, in particular, allow viewers to witness these moments happen right before their eyes. This can often lead to curiosity and an increanse in knowledge depending on the subject presented in the film. Below are films we released that caused one to become culturally educated and also intrigued in the presented subject matter in the film. 


An adventure film for the 21st century, EXPEDITION TO THE END OF THE WORLD takes an irreverent, philosophical look at humanity and our effect on the world around us. On a three-mast schooner packed with artists, scientists and ambitions worthy of Noah or Columbus, a crew sets sail for the end of the world: the rapidly melting massifs of Northeast Greenland. It is an epic journey, with the brave explorers on board encountering polar bear nightmares, Stone Age playgrounds and entirely new species. But in their meetings with these new and unknown parts of the world, the crew is also confronted with the existential questions of life.
