• Producer Victor Plank Harms on Creating The Young Greenlanders

    Victor Plank Harms is a supervising producer based in New York City, but his work has brought him to the most remote areas of the globe. He is passionate about producing bold programming that explores foreign territories while educating the public about taboo topics. Harms chose a career in television because he is passionate about creating public service programming that makes an impact on a large audience.

    “I love working in TV because it’s a mass media. In a way producing public television programming is similar to teaching a masterclass for a global audience.”

    Harms is the creator of documentary series The Young Greenlanders, one of the most prestigious documentary series produced for the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. The four-part documentary is portraying the modern Inuit lifestyle in Greenland. The series is focusing on the new generation of young Greenlanders struggling to break down prejudices about the Greenlandic society that is dealing with social issues and has the highest suicide rate in the world.
