Edge of Ice

Top of page

An impressive documentary film on the nature of Arctic sea-ice and its crucial importance to life in the far north. Underwater photography presents rare views of some of the world's most spectacular wildlife, while micro- and macro-photography enhance the world within and without individual ice crystals. Scenes from Inuit hunting camps at the floe's edge illuminate the relationship of these Arctic people to the intricate ecosystem based on ice.
