Asgeir Helgestad, 70 minutes, Documentary, Norwegian with Arabic and English subtitles, 2018, Norway. 

An unpretentious and sensitive film on the meeting between Frost, a beautiful polar bear mother, and a Norwegian wildlife filmmaker. It is a five-year journey, since their first encounter in 2013 at her arctic home in Svalbard. Climate change and especially rising temperatures are responsible for dramatic changes in her ecosystem as the ice is melting away at record speeds. 

The film won 13 awards at international wildlife specialized film festivals, including The Jury Prize for Best Environmental Film at the 2018 Missoula International Wildlife Film Festival. It was also nominated for three more awards.
