As the Arctic polar ice cap melts, reaching the North Pole has become increasingly dangerous. But an expedition of women from the Arab World and Europe, led by explorer Felicity Aston, strap on their skis and pull their sledges true North, determined to succeed against all odds and polar advice. Filmmaker Holly Morris and an all-women crew document this daring and unprecedented group as they navigate everything from frostbite and polar bear threats, to sexism and self-doubt in an intimate story of resilience, survival and global citizenry — in what may be the last-ever over-ice expedition to the top of the world.
This is a rental of The Loft Cinema, presented by Women’s Foundation for the State of Arizona.
