This is a stunning and innovative example of interactive storytelling, which focuses on the town of Thule – a municipality in Northern Greenland that was overtaken by the U.S military during the Cold War. The web-documentary by Anrick Bergman uses a combination of beautiful graphic maps, the personal memories of those who were relocated, and a stunning array of moving pictures to tell Thule’s tale.

Hushed images of washing lines ruffling in the cool breeze, rainbow coloured houses nestled into the side of a mountain, and trickling icicles melting beside a glistening glacial transport you with ease to the sleepy town, and help to blow life into the otherwise forgotten story of the Most Northern Place. The sound of wind, water and a wonderful tinkling musical soundtrack accompanies you on your journey through the pages of this gorgeously immersive web documentary from UNIT9. So take a trip to Thule with the click of a button, you won’t want to come back home.
