Antipodes are points diametrically opposite to each other on the earth’s surface. During his visits to four such antipodal pairs, award-winning filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky captured images that turn our view of the world upside down. A beautiful sunset in Entre Ríos is contrasted with the bustling streets of Shanghai. People who live in a wasteland are connected to those living beside a volcano. Landscapes whose splendour touches the soul are juxtaposed with the clamor of a vast city. These antipodes seem somehow connected by their oppositeness.

Kossakovsky’s movie is a feast for the senses, a fascinating kaleidoscopic view of our planet.

Directed by Victor Kossakovsky (unrated, 2011, 108 mins).
