Queen without Land
- Eco Crisis in the Time of Climate Change
|Synopsis||This is a true story on the meeting between Frost, a polar bear mother, and Asgeir Helgestad, a Norwegian wildlife filmmaker. Rising temperatures are responsible for dramatic changes in Frost’s ecosystem as the ice is melting at record speed. The disappearing sea ice forces life to new limits. Fjords that were once full of ice and seals get abandoned pushing Frost further away. Asgeir is determined to find her and document all that is being lost, but his task is far from easy. This film explores the question “this planet is home to all of us, can we afford to ignore it?”
