BAD CIRCUMSTANCES / Slette omstændigheder by Max Kestner

BAD CIRCUMSTANCES takes its starting point in the mythical Denmark Expedition to north-eastern Greenland 1906-08, which cost Mylius-Erichsen, Høgh Hagen, and Jørgen Brønlund their lives. The focal point of the film is the indomitable Steffen Holberg, who wants to uncover the truth behind the official explanation that the expedition's search team only found Brønlund's dead body and did not even look for the other two.

Absolutely determined to find the answer to the questions that continue to dog the expedition, Holberg pursues his own detective work into the state archives. He seeks help from knowledgeable people and professional experts and moves ever deeper into the rugged terrain between truth and myth, fiction and reality. The film becomes a universal tale about the human zeal to map new lands and a poetic tribute to the imagination that is required to see past our habitual preconceptions about the nature of reality in order to gain new insights.
