The project will result in television productions, exhibitions, and a large format photography book which will be published in ten languages, in over thirty countries in 2016-2017.
This epic tale based on actual events takes us over the seemingly endless pack-ice of the Arctic Ocean and close to the impressive wildlife which is struggling for survival in the most extreme, and at the same time most beautiful, environment on Earth. Through the eyes of a very special polar bear, we will experience a world of ice in transformation, and learn how we are within reach of the tipping point - the irreversible moment when the climate on Planet Earth begins collapsing. The Arctic, more than any other place, is our climate front line. The future of a living planet is directly tied to the future of this region. Because what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic.
Fredrik Granath says "Work in the Arctic is demanding. It is a region which often offers the most extreme conditions on this planet. Uncompromised quality, reliability and performance need to be at the core of everything. Only the world's best equipment and logistics are good enough. The Arctic is water - frozen and fluid. We are very proud to work with our friends at GT Line. Their Explorer Cases are the only ones I trust. No matter which conditions we face out there, we know we can always rely on them. They offer the best protection for our camera gear and technical equipment, both in the field and when we make cargo shipments around the world. And just like us, GT Line have a care for nature and the environment as an important part of their foundation.”
