The Polar Explorer is a documentary that explores the three-week scientific expedition studying the effects of climate change in the Arctic region, as well as at the other end of the earth, Antarctica.

The film will feature the in-field research of some of the world’s foremost polar scientists as they show how warmer temperatures are affecting the speed of melting glaciers, icebergs, pack ice and floes, an examination of the drastically changing eco-systems in both polar regions.
