Stunning Cinematography mixed with Jaw Dropping Reality
27 July 2015 | by harmonysweetSee all my reviews

The Antarctica Challenge: A Global Warning takes a sobering look at the Antarctic region, revealing the devastation to both life and land caused by global warming. Mary Terry combines breath-taking cinematography with factual scientific data, expert interviews, and historical records, to open our eyes to the realities of how our actions are negatively impacting our earth. It is no wonder the film has won eleven (or more!) international film festival awards and was featured at the United Nation's Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen. And today, The Antarctica Challenge - A Global Warning continues to be featured at universities and educational institutions across Canada and around the world. This film truly is a MUST SEE for everyone.

NOTE: Be sure to hang around after the credits for a special surprise!
