Frozen Obsession

Climate change is a critical scientific and social issue that confronts today's world. Nowhere are the consequences of a warming climate more pronounced and observable than in the Polar Regions. The documentary FROZEN OBSESSION follows the 18-day, 2,000-mile Northwest Passage Project expedition through the stunningly beautiful and extreme Canadian Arctic Archipelago aboard the Swedish research icebreaker Oden. During the expedition, the Northwest Passage Project team studies water chemistry, microbiology, birds, mammals, and physical oceanography. As FROZEN OBSESSION bears witness to a dramatically changing Arctic, we gain a sobering assessment of what's at stake. But in a hopeful turn, the film also witnesses the exhilarating life-changing experiences of the students on this expedition, who represent the next generation of scientists and decision makers who will surely make a difference in the world.
