Storyline

Departing the arctic capital of Yellowknife with 40 days of food,Frank Wolf and Taku Hokoyama strike out into the largest wilderness area in North America. The region contains one of the highest concentrations of land mammals on earth and the pair encounter arctic wolves, the caribou migration, musk ox and- most importantly- make the first ever recording of a rare and elusive creature not previously thought to exist in northern Canada. Through interviews with politicians, First Nation chiefs, elders and others living in the few communities that frame the wilderness they present a clear picture of the area and the issues that face the land and its people. Written by Frank Wolf

Amazing shots, great commentary!!
15 May 2011 | by quesnelaSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed this film. An amazing journey through part of the Great Canadian north which most of us never see. Some of the wildlife is quite amazing to see, including a very rare and exotic snow leopard which had never been documented on film before...quite a stunning creature

The right mix between education, comedy and beautiful scenery. Did a small screening of this film in Sweden, and everyone left with a smile on their face!

Taku and Frank are quite enjoyable to watch and are a great team for pulling off crazy adventures.

Good fun for the whole family! Well done, also love Frank Wolfs other film (Borealis)... also highly recommended.

I look forward to the next film Frank!
