Don’t miss a one-night-only screening of the breathtaking new documentary Exposure in the Mugar Omni Theater, presented in partnership with the Woods Hole Film Festival.
As the Arctic polar ice cap melts, reaching the North Pole has become increasingly dangerous. Yet an expedition of ordinary women from the Arab world and the West strap on skis and haul heaving sledges toward true North, against all odds and polar advice. Award-winning filmmaker Holly Morris captures it all, from frostbite and polar bear threats to sexism and self-doubt in the intimate story of resilience, survival, and global citizenry — on what might be the last-ever expedition to the top of the world.
