Breaking Through {Durchbrechen} is a visual diary on board of the Finnish icebreaker Kontio. Several shots from a twenty one-day journey through the gulf of Bothnia are combined with the text, The Transparency of Ice, which reflects on how to break ice between people. A deep frequency and steady vibration fills the space, strengthening the impression of sea voyage by simulating the powerful engines, which are the most important element in breaking the ice.
