The revenge thriller Polaris follows a treacherous journey across icy terrain: here’s the trailer.
Described as “Mad Max in the arctic”, Polaris is a fantasy revenge epic. The official synopsis is as follows:
Set in 2144 against the harsh backdrop of a frozen wasteland, Sumi, a human child raised by Mama Polar Bear, narrowly escapes capture from a brutal Morad hunting party and sets out across the vast winter landscape. When Sumi stumbles across Frozen Girl, an unlikely friendship is forged, and together they race ahead of the vindictive hunters towards the only guiding light Sumi knows, the Polaris star.
13-year-old Viva Lee leads the cast as Sumi. Other members of the cast include Khamisa Wilsher, Muriel Dutil, and Kara Wooten.
The film is written and directed by KC Carthew.
