Video: Definitely not the summer’s hottest movie…


…But it’s still got babes in bikinis, big guns, death-defying stunts and an ironic twist as soldiers, scientists, royalty and humble citizens (with lots of money) converge at the Barneo ice camp at 89 degrees latitude north this spring in “Arctic United,” a documentary by the Russian TV network RT that is free to view or download. The 26-minute film (mostly in Russian with English subtitles and narration) captures the camp’s setup, daily routines and activities ranging from polar dips to skydiving at the North Pole. And, no, “United” makes no mention of Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmity Rogozin’s excellent adventure where he tells his troops the Russians deserve the area all to themselves.
