Polaris – A Girl and a Polar Bear must survive in the trailer for a Mad Max in the Arctic revenge thriller

Set in 2144 against the harsh backdrop of a frozen wasteland, Sumi, a human child raised by Mama Polar Bear, narrowly escapes capture from a brutal Morad hunting party and sets out across the vast winter landscape. When Sumi stumbles across Frozen Girl, an unlikely friendship is forged and together they race ahead of the vindictive hunters towards the only guiding light Sumi knows, the Polaris star.

This looks fantastic and is written and directed by Canadian filmmaker KC Carthew (The Sun at Midnight). The film stars Viva Lee, Khamisa Wilsher and Muriel Dutil.

Carthew said that the film is “Mad Max in the Arctic, an origin story of a world gone to shame that builds from themes of environmental stewardship/horror. Filmed in the subarctic, the story is set in a futuristic frozen world born of the brutal disregard of generations prior – where any nation could be buried under the snow. It is inspired by eco-feminism and the need for significant cultural and sustainable change. The film portrays these themes with an entirely female cast – including the polar bear.”

Polaris premieres at the 2022 Fantasia Film Festival. Check out the official site.

Produced by Max Fraser, Paul Cadieux, KC Carthew & Alyson Richards.
