Speechless – The Polar Realm
“Human use, population, and technology have reached that certain stage where mother Earth no longer accepts our presence with silence.” – Dalai Lama XIV
Speechless – The Polar Realm | 44 mins | In Film Festivals from May 2015
Beautifully filmed by New Zealand nature photographer Richard Sidey over the past decade throughout the Earth’s polar regions, Speechless – The Polar Realm is a non-verbal visual meditation of light, life, loss and wonder at the ends of the globe.
In search of an individual viewing experience aided by the absence of spoken narrative, Speechless – The Polar Realm guides this cinematic voyage through both powerful imagery of the natural world and a poignant, original score from composer and sound artist, Miriama Young, performed by Mirabai Peart and Ryan Francesconi.
“Powerful visuals and a compelling score. Truly does leave us Speechless” – Paul Nicklen | National Geographic
