Description

Arctic Film Screenings: Poles Apart (Singapore-UK, 2017, 12 mins), The Sun At Midnight (Canada, 2016, 93 mins)

Brought to you by Canadian Alumni Singapore, with the support of the High Commission of Canada

Join us for a screening of two newly-released award-winning Arctic films. The opening film, Poles Apart, is a 12 minute stop-motion animation film set in a melting Canadian Arctic landscape. It tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a hungry polar bear, Nanuk, and an enthusiastic grizzly bear, Aklak. Special guest, Singaporean producer, Ser En Low will be at the event to introduce her latest film. The film has won multiple awards, including the Edinburgh International Film Festival, McLaren Award for Best British Animation; and the Rhode Island International Film Festival, Best Short Animation First Prize.

The feature presentation is the critically-acclaimed Canadian film The Sun at Midnight, directed by Kirsten Carthew, starring Devery Jacobs and Duane Howard. Set in the Arctic Circle, the film tells the story of an unexpected friendship between a hunter obsessed with finding a missing caribou herd and a teenage rebel who gets lost while on the run. The film, the first by Kirsten Carthew, has won multiple awards, including Best Picture, Reel 2 Reel International Film Festival for Youth; Best Actor (Devery Jacobs), Whistler Film Festival; Best Picture Editing in a Motion Picture, Best Musical Score in a Motion Picture and Best Lead Performance by a Male in a Motion Picture (Devery Jacobs), Leo Awards; and Best Competition Narrative, Bentonville Film Festival.
