This award winning feature film, EXPOSURE, is a powerful story following a Muslim chaplain, a French biologist, a Qatari princess and eight other women who pull 150-pound sledges across the fast-disappearing Arctic sea ice to become, together – and against all odds – the last-ever team to reach the North Pole. This group of daring women from the Arab World and the West attempt to ski across the melting Arctic sea ice to the North Pole. Director Holly Morris and her crew capture the struggle of these boundary-breaking adventurers who, led by veteran polar explorer Felicity Aston, navigate everything from frostbite and polar bear threats, to sexism and self-doubt in an intimate story of resilience, survival and global citizenry.
In addition to viewing this incredible film, you will also have the amazing opportunity to meet the director, Holly Morris for a Q&A session following the film. To learn more, visit the official EXPOSURE film website: www.exposure-film.com
