If you have not experienced Arctic, here’s a journey following a mother polar bear and her twin cubs into the world of majestic glaciers and massive ice sheet. The documentary adventure To The Arctic 3D tells the ultimate story of survival in the changing Arctic wilderness. Join the 3D tour and you will hover over immense ice sheets, patterned by majestic glaciers that carve the edges of ice into thundering waterfalls.
There’s more than the majestic landscape. Presented by Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX Filmed Entertainment, the film was produced with a commitment to “entertain and inspire”. “It’s our hope that audiences who see ‘To The Arctic’ will get the same sense of wonder and appreciation for this incredible environment that I was lucky enough to experience during the four years it took for us to make this film”, said director Greg MacGillivray, a two-time Academy Award nominee.

About 10 minutes into the movie, you would find yourself landing on thin shivering ice, diving into the water with the mother polar bear and her twin cub. With the ice melting earlier and faster, the polar bear family is given limited access and less time to find seals, longer distances to swim without rest, and tougher competition.

Migrating caribou and clumsy walrus also spice up the awe-inspiring survival story. Not only the wildlife are striving for a living in the Arctic, the filming crew who “dove into the subfreezing arctic brine with a 400-pound submersible IMAX camera through a hole bored in the four-foot surface ice” were not excluded from the frigidity that “beyond 45 minutes your hands will freeze stiff, your brain will numb to a crawl and you’d better be finding the exit soon”, said MacGillivray.

So why not take a safe cozy tour at the Pacific Science Center’s Boeing IMAX Theater? Oscar winner Meryl Streep will walk you through the breathtaking scenes with her narration, accompanied by Steve Wood’s musical score.

Starting April 20th, the 40-minute film would not only take you away to the top of the world, but reminds us the beauty and fragility of nature. The film’s official companion book To The Arctic, featuring nature photography by Florian Schulz invite you to delve into the life in the Arctic.

Lastly, after seeing the film, it’s time to take actions to protect its natural wonders. Information can be found on official websites: welcometothearctic.org ; macgillivrayfreemanfilms.com.
