Breaking Ice (72 min)
Immerse yourself in the world’s first feature-length documentary and 360° interactive video tour aboard the iconic Amundsen icebreaker in the Canadian Arctic. Explore the drastically changing northern landscape through the eyes of the onboard crew, scientists, students, and Inuit peoples. Delve deep into their findings to see what climate change really means at the top of the world.
But, it’s not just about the science. It’s about the people behind the science – their life onboard the ship as they work 24/7 under tight timelines, amid homesickness, adversity, and facing hazards inherent to the Arctic, all while wrestling with their own thoughts on what they’re finding and how it relates to their lives back home and the lives of those who live in the North.
