From August 21 to September 2, long-distance hiker and filmmaker Mark Flagler was in Newfoundland beginning production on a one-hour documentary about the IAT in North America. It follows his successful Appalachian Impressions documentary about the US Appalachian Trail, which aired in more than a million households on the PBS television network.
Though planning to begin filming in 2012, Mark traveled to Newfoundland in August to take advantage of the abundant icebergs caused by the gradual break-up of the Petermann Ice Island off the northeast coast. The massive iceberg broke off the Petermann Glacier in northwest Greenland in 2010.
