A witty animated short of a mischieveous polar bear interviewing random eccentric North Pole characters about their views on climate change with varying results. Winner of the PhilaEnviroFilmFest 2020 BEST ANIMATED SHORT AWARD.

Director's Statement:

It’s a waste to constrain ourselves to reality. By distancing himself, taking a bird’s-eye view, Dijkstra is able to shed new light on contemporary discussions, like the climate change debate. He prefers his work short and rough-and-ready.
