A rare opportunity to hear work in translation from the cult Danish Podcast ‘Third Ear‘, this special event presents the winner of the 2015 In The Dark Audio Documentary Award, presented at Sheffield Doc/fest earlier this month.

Kvinden på Isen (The Woman On The Ice) tells the story of Karen Roos, a young Danish woman, who disappeared on the ice outside the little Eastern Greenlandic settlement Angmassalik in 1933. More than 80 years later radio producer Rikke Houd follows in her footsteps.

The piece was praised by the judges for the sweep and scale of the sound design, the simplicity of the narrative and the way the vivid landscape was evoked, allowing it to become so implicated in the story. Speaking of the producer/narrator, they referred to “the ineffable thing that a storyteller can bring” – and described Rikke’s approach as one of a humble and gentle maker who, without ever getting in the way, brought this story together with empathy and a singular vision.

This audio documentary is in Danish and will be presented with English subtitles.
