The Polar Sea

The Polar Sea is a multi-platform 10-hour journey through the fabled, beautiful -- and melting -- Northwest Passage. We travel with amateur sailors, scientists, hunters and artists on a quest from Iceland to Alaska that was practically impossible just a decade ago.

Now, as the Arctic ice disappears, a surreal terrain emerges, filled with ominous dangers and seductive possibilities. Filmed from dozens of perspectives, including revolutionary 360 degree cameras, THE POLAR SEA takes you deep into a world you have never seen, because, until now, it did not exist.

Hugely entertaining and mind-bogglingly educational at the same time, it instantly stands as one of the landmarks in the long and rich history of Canadian documentary filmmaking.
