9-year-old Torarin is over the moon when his parents get a couple of camels to join them in Hammerfest, the North most city in the world.
The Arctic Camels follows Bor and Bestla are the only two camels in the world who live north of the Arctic Circle. The plan is to train them and build a camel centre – but camels are stubborn creatures, so the family head over to Mongolia to see how training is traditionally done.
Told from Torarin’s perspective, the film shares his journey and feelings towards incorporating the Mongolian training methods into their way of life. Against beautiful contrasting landscapes of Mongolia and Norway, The Arctic Camels is a charming and bumpy ride that observes our relationships to, and expectations of, working animals.
