LIFFE stands for Ljubljana International Film Festival. Four years ago we were checking the programme and saw a movie with a very fish related title. So members of the BTRG went to see Fickende Fische (Do Fish Do It?). The idea was good and worth repeating. The following year we waited too long to get the tickets so we went to see a movie with absolutely no fish related subject, Les Poupées russes (The Russian Dolls). Last year it was Sonhos de Peixe (Fish Dreams) and this year we selected a documentary Encounters at the End of the World.

4 core members of the BTRG went to see the movie plus 1 special guest star, we also met 2 former co-workers in the cinema. About the movie shot in Antarctica.... It is not a "fluffy penguin movie", more a series of interviews with "professional travellers and occasional workers", and weirdo scientists. We now understand a little bit better what people we meet on field trips think about us and our work.
