The Norwegian wilderness.
Explored by six friends.
On one unforgettable journey.
Most travel films are merely aesthetic montages. We wanted to tell a story.
A story of human connection in an unfamiliar place.
What are wondrous memories, behemoth mountains, gargantuan fjords and jaw-dropping vistas without the brotherhood and sisterhood to which all of us are bound?
No beginning, middle or end.
The Familiar Unknown is about confronting a new challenge with the backing and guidance of friendship.
It is a commentary on the nature of our obsession for exploration of the mysterious, and the bonds between those who share it.
