Washington, D.C. Premiere To create this film, photographer Anthony Powell spent ten years, including nine winters clocking the continent on camera: from the 24-hour darkness of winter to desolate, stunning polar vistas—blazing aurora, freezing ice storms—and the creatures and humans who are based there. Time-lapse imagery, Powell’s specialty, evokes the ever-changing patterns of polar life. Directed and produced by Anthony Powell. Winner, Audience Choice Award, 2013 Calgary International Film Festival.

Introduced by Caroline Beresford, Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of New Zealand. Discussion with Brian Huber, Curator of Planktic Foraminifera and Chairman, Department of Paleobiology, Smithsonian Institution, follows screening.
