Film review: ‘Ice and The Sky’ ★★★

It’s testament to an overdue and definitive shift to mainstream debate that a documentary on climate change was chosen to close this year’s Cannes Film Festival. A decade on from the cuddly tale of monogamy and perseverance that was March of the Penguins (2005), Luc Jacquet again returns to the Antarctic. Much like the beloved subjects of his world renowned animal odyssey the French director’s latest project, Ice and the Sky (2015), details a life lived predominantly in the unrelenting bitterness of sub-zero temperatures.

Ice and the Sky will be shown in limited UK cinemas as of 11th December – visit CineVue here to read the full review!
