Four hundred years after settling a new world, the Norse colonizers of Greenland disappeared.For centuries after they vanished, their lands lay mostly untouched until another group of settlers rediscovered these remote sites. Still Ruins, Moving Stones takes the viewer to South Greenland where Danish archeologists work on the restoration of some the world’s best-preserved Norse ruins. This contemplative video explores how humans move about altering the landscape – adding new layers and redacting ancient ones.
