Speechless – The Polar Realm


Speechless – The Polar Realm | 44 mins | Due 2015

Beautifully filmed by New Zealand nature photographer Richard Sidey over the past decade around the polar regions, Speechless – The Polar Realm is a visual meditation of light, life, loss and wonder at the ends of the globe. In search of an individual experience, The Polar Realm dispenses with words and is set to a compelling, emotionally charged original score from Dr. Miriama Young, performed by Mirabai Peart and Ryan Francesconi.
