VOYAGE WITH THE ICE QUEEN
Phoenix Cinema, Pickaquoy, Kirkwall
The Northwest Passage was for so long the Holy Grail of exploration. Maps of the area are littered with the names of those who came back, and those that did not. Today more ships are making the journey and last year Maiwenn Beadle became the first professional female captain to take a vessel through the 4,500-mile passage, from Davis Strait to Bering Strait. Now living in Orkney, she tells the story of the journey and shows spectacular images of sea, ice and wildlife – and some Orkney names along the route.
