Man-against-nature would seem to be the basic plot of Zero Kelvin, a flash-frozen adventure tale about a writer who accompanies an ill-fated fur-trapping team to Greenland. Though the terrain may suggest White Fang and Cold Fever, the Hirshhorn says this 1996 Norwegian film “recalls the mood of Joseph Conrad’s stories.” At 8 p.m. at Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden’s Ring Auditorium, 8th & Independence Ave. SW. FREE. (202) 357-2700. (Mark Jenkins)
