WICA Brings award winning filmmaker Holly Morris to Whidbey Island for 2 Days
Screening of Exposure with on stage talk back with Holly after the film.
As the Arctic polar ice cap melts, reaching the North Pole has become increasingly dangerous. Yet an expedition of ordinary women from the Arab world and the West strap on skis and haul heaving sledges toward true North, against all odds and polar advice.
Award-winning filmmaker, Holly Morris, captures it all, from frostbite and polar bear threats, to sexism and self-doubt in this intimate story of resilience, survival and global citizenry - on what may be the last-ever expedition to the top of the world.
EXPOSURE is a gorgeous, adrenaline-laced documentary about strong women and the degrading climate. But the film also ignites in audiences and expeditioners alike a passion for what’s possible when we push past our fears and open ourselves to change. The film invites us to imagine a world of women, believing in themselves and taking the reins, working across boundaries of all kinds, and leading us into a future where we adapt, with compassion and equity, to the challenges ahead.
