Interview: Juliette Binoche on Endless Night

Monumental Pictures

Shot in the snowy wilderness of Bulgaria and Norway as well as a studio on the Spanish island of Tenerife, Endless Night finds Binoche playing real life figure Josephine Peary. Wife of famous Arctic explorer Robert Peary, in 1908 Josephine embarked on a journey across Greenland to find her husband.
