Photographer and filmmaker Abraham Joffe is drawn to empty places, the North Pole chief among them. On a trip to Greenland, Joffe saw icebergs the size of five city blocks. Even since then, he’s been shooting Arctic landscapes with fellow photographer Joshua Holko, who’s also the subject of this film. Together, the pair traveled to the world of ice to catch a rare glimpse inside the life of polar bears.
