Tears of the Arctic is an acclaimed 2008 Korean documentary that takes viewers into the mysterious frozen wilderness that is the arctic and examines the effects recent environmental changes have had on this delicate eco system, observing both the suffering animal population and the Inuit hunters who are being forced to radically adapt their ancient traditions for the warm new world. Lauded actor Ahn Sung Gi narrates this compelling documentary, which offers an intimate and honest portrait of this often misunderstood region. Unlike other documentaries on environmental change, this film doesn't seek to dramatize the natural events or exploit these events for political purposes. Rather, this film offers an unflinching, unbiased observation of how the people and animals of the arctic have been forced to change in order to survive in a place where the effects of global warming are most blatantly clear. Tears of the Arctic is a riveting documentary that's relevant to people all over the world.
