-40°C

It’s pitch dark and -40°C when the phone rings in Canada’s northwest. An on-call teacher must cycle to work through darkness and ice fog, in cold so deep that it can break steel and freeze lungs with a single unfiltered breath.

Director’s statement

Paul Davis says:

“This film had its creative start during a long hard winter voyage halfway around the world in a big ‘U’ from -40°C in Whitehorse, Yukon, to -10°C in Tromso, North Norway.

Norwegians could not believe that we operate at -40°C, so I decided to make a film about my daily routine of biking to work as an on-call teacher, during 19 hour long nights, at -40°C in ice-fog.”

    Paul is a great guy I know for many years. We enjoy his visit at the Association Franco Yukonnaise always using his French with a nice English accent. We see him often on our Friday evening meal were he has many friends. He is also a very tough guy, riding his bike by -35. [No more -45 in Whitehorse Yukon since the the 1990]
