Maritime Forums

Lessons from Antarctica: The Burden of Fire

Tuesday, 20.10

Riho Västrik and Vello Park (Estonia)

This Maritime Forum will include a screening of Riho Västrik’s documentary Burden of Fire (Tulekahju paine). This will be followed by a conversation, where any participant can ask questions from Riho Västrik, the director, and Vello Park, the main character of the extreme story reflected in the film.

Riho Västrik is a director, scriptwriter and producer of documentary films. Vello Park is an Antarctic explorer, marine meteorologist, geographer and mountaineer, being the only Estonian who has wintered in Antarctica for four times. Largely thanks to him, the team at the Antarctic Vostok research station survived the panic situation after the fire of the station’s power plant.

This Maritime Forum will be in Estonian.

The Maritime Forums are free for everyone. The forum will begin at 18.00 and we shall meet shortly before it near the Desk at the Seaplane Harbour.
