"To The Arctic": A Thrilling Journey to the Top of the World
New IMAX® film shows the struggles of a mother polar bear and her young cubs
The vast icy landscapes and stark climate are enough to characterize the Arctic as an otherworldly, almost mythical environment. But "To The Arctic" takes us past myth and into reality for one family of polar bears that calls the Arctic home.
"To The Arctic," a MacGillivray Freeman Film co-produced by Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX Filmed Entertainment, chronicles the captivating story of family, survival, and hope. Narrated by Oscar®-winner Meryl Streep, the film takes audiences into the lives of a mother polar bear and her twin seven-month-old cubs as never before captured on film, as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. Adventure arises as the mother and her cubs confront predators, harsh terrain, and the dangers of a changing climate—all captured in IMAX® 3D.
Featuring songs by Paul McCartney, "To The Arctic" is an intimate look at life in this faraway land at a time when polar bears are increasingly threatened. Opening exclusively in select IMAX theatres starting April 20, "To The Arctic" offers an essential reminder of how important—yet fragile—these magnificent creatures really are.
