It’s Earth Day so we get to check out some cool polar bears and remember we are killing the planet!
April 22 is Earth Day and it has become a tradition for the studios to remind us that we are killing the planet in a film reminder. This year Warner Brothers has recruited Oscar Winner Meryl Streep to narrate the tale “To The Arctic”. In addition to Streep’s vocal talent and the wonderful photography of the Arctic Circle, To The Arctic features music by Paul McCartney.
To The Arctic is the tale of how animals are struggling to survive in the Arctic Circle with ice eroding away and food sources getting harder and harder to come by. We are first introduced to a family of polar bears that love the sub-zero temps and rely on floating ice barges to fish for seals in order to eat and feed their families. We see a mother polar bear and her two cubs swim for days and evade numerous attacks by male polar bears in order to find a food source. Male polar bears will attack cubs in order to eat with diminishing food source in the Arctic. With winters becoming shorter and the ice melting at a rapid pace, soon the polar bears will have nowhere to live and be at a dangerous disadvantage if there is no ice to hunt from.
