Speechless – The Polar Realm
‘A transcendent cinematic experience.’
Filmed over ten years throughout the Earth’s polar regions by nature photographer Richard Sidey, Speechless – The Polar Realm is an award-winning non-verbal visual meditation of light, life, loss and wonder at the ends of the globe.
In search of an individual viewing experience aided by the absence of spoken narrative, this cinematic voyages is guided through both powerful imagery of the natural world and a poignant, original score from composer and sound artist, Miriama Young.
