This documentary takes viewers on a gripping journey to the Arctic, a remote and isolated region that’s rapidly changing due to climate change. As the Arctic thaws, the entire world is impacted, and global powers like Russia, the US, China, and Canada see this change as an opportunity for new trade routes, tourism, and mineral resources. Yet, for the people who call the Arctic home, the changing landscape means fear, uncertainty, and a new struggle as they try to adapt to new ways of living.
In this two-part series, the film crew travels across the northern reaches of the US, Canada, Greenland, Norway, and Russia to document the impact of the melting ice on the lives of Arctic inhabitants. From fishermen who are being driven from their traditional fishing grounds to the US-Canada conflict over water ownership, the film crew provides a firsthand account of the struggle happening in the far north. The documentary also highlights the beauty and wonder of the Arctic region, and how nature, including mighty glaciers and fjords, is being impacted by this fast-moving change. With stunning visuals, this documentary asks important questions about the impact of climate change on our world and what it means for our future.
