Arctic Tale (2007)


Directors: Adam Ravetch and Sarah Robertson
Starring: Queen Latifah (narrator)


Arctic Tale is an extraordinary documentary that heightens our connection with the lives and destinies of an Arctic polar bear and a walrus.

This heartbreaking documentary puts a face on the sad statistics of global warming—and though it's not a human face, it's perhaps the even more effective face of an adorable polar bear cub Nanu, along with her mother, her brother, and her natural enemy, the equally heart-melting Seela, the walrus. With breathtaking footage of life on the arctic tundra, the directors spin a highly emotional tale of the melting ice caps and the effect of their disappearance on every species in the ecosystem.
