Lately, Netflix has been releasing shows based on actual story events and Against The Ice is one of them. It is a historical survival film, directed by Peter Flinth and written by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Joe Derrick. The entire production team was composed of genuinely unique and talented individuals. Their technical crew includes Volker Bertelmann for music direction, Torben Forsberg for cinematography, and Morten Højbjerg for editing. They shot in Iceland and Greenland just last year, January 19, 2021, when they revealed it was based on a Danish Book, Two Against The Ice, by Ejnar Mikkelsen that was published in 1957.

When Will Against The Ice Premiere On Netflix?

Against the Ice gets its worldwide premiere at the Berlin film festival in February 2022, while Netflix announced that the film isn’t scheduled to release on its platform until March 2, 2022. We know subscribers are excited to watch on the streaming powerhouse, but we have to wait for a few more weeks to debut worldwide on Netflix.

What To Expect?

Against The Ice is true of a Danish polar explorer, Ejnar Mikkelsen and his expedition to Greenland in 1909. Mikkelsen was leading Denmark’s Alabama Expedition. His mission was to disprove United States’ argument that Greenland is two different islands and stop them from claiming North-Eastern Greenland. With that in mind, Mikkelsen and a young engineer, Iver Iversen, left their ship and started their journey.
