ExposureDirected by Holly Morris
Taking place during one of the most chaotic polar seasons in history, 11 women from the Arab World and the West struggle together to reach climate change ground zero: The North Pole. Facing wild challenges - from Russian helicopter crashes and moving Arctic sea ice, to punishing frostbite and open leads of water – an unlikely story of resilience and global citizenry emerges.
