A film by Isabel Coixet
The opening film of the 65th Berlin Film Festival in 2015, Endless Night* is an epic story of passion, dignity and strength based on the real historical figure Josephine Peary.
Endless Night is the story of a high society woman from the United States, Josephine Peary (Juliette Binoche) who, in 1908, decides she wants to join her husband, explorer Robert Peary, and share in the glorious moment of discovering the North Pole.
Although everyone, and especially Bram (Gabriel Byrne) – an experienced explorer –, warns her of the dangers lying in wait for her, Josephine Peary embarks on this risky venture without heeding anyone, accompanied by Bram and two Eskimos. The film narrates the epic trek of this woman through one of the most inhospitable places in the world, her adventures, and her meeting with an Inuit woman, Allaka (Rinko Kikuchi), which will strongly influence her rigid ideas concerning the world and life… forever.
Josephine Peary will have to face death, danger and her own ghosts if she wishes to survive the arctic night. Endless Night is a story about adventures and discovery, pain and survival and, above all, an incredible love story.
