Is Beyond the Pole coming to a cinema near you? http://beyondthepole.com/
Shot on floating sea ice, off the coast of Greenland, and deep in polar bear country there has never been an indie like it. Variety called it: “A satirical breath of fresh air” and compared it to a cross between The Office and Touching the Void.
But don’t take our word for it. Have a look for yourself and then pass it on!
Footage taken from a recent screening:
Boys meet the cocky gay Norwegians
This is a British indie flick that has charmed fans and critics alike and is punching well above its weight. Having picked up awards at every festival it’s participated in, the question is – can it get a US release? If you love True Blood, British comedy, Friends and if you’re a Green and if you’re not! (did we mention it’s the FIRST global warming comedy in the World?!) we’d love to see you. Be one of the first in the US to take a look and let us know what YOU think.
