The historical houses in Ilimanaq

A three parts series for television

 

In this series, Ánorâk Film in cooperation with Realdania By & Byg and Greenlandic Broadcasting Corporation follows the restoration of two of Greenland's oldest houses.

 

In the small and idyllic village of Ilimanaq - situated right next to the UNESCO-protected Ilulissat ice fjord - two houses from the 1700s are being restored with the purpose of serving as restaurant and conference facilities for tourists. But it's not solely a tourism project. By bringing the historic houses back to life, the project's three partners - Realdania By & Byg, World of Greenland and Qaasuitsup Kommunia - also hope to revive the old village, where population has dropped dramatically in recent years. Can the colonial history of Greenland help create a new and sustainable future?
