Robert Peroni, a former explorer from Alto Adige, thirty years ago gave up everything to move to eastern Greenland, in the land of a population that seems doomed to extinction. In the 70s the European Community banned the trade in seal skin, but in doing so, it deprived this millenary civilization of its only form of economic sustenance: hunting. The Danish government responds by exporting Western economic and tourism models. For their part, the Inuits react with an attitude of passivity, accepting everything and waiting for something to happen. All of this has lead to increased rates of alcoholism, depression, and suicide. Robert therefore founded The Red House, a shelter that offers work to local people left with nothing, because the future of this place belongs to the young and those who want to stay: an uncertain future in a pandemic present.
