Synopsis

Nanuk is a tough though starving polar bear who wanders through the harsh Arctic landscape looking for her first meal in weeks. Just as she is about to catch her prey, a stranger arrives and scares it off. Aklak is a naïve but enthusiastic Canadian grizzly bear who has been forced to leave his natural habitat behind. While he is not afraid to explore new surroundings, he doesn’t realise that Nanuk is deciding whether or not to eat her new furry friend. Exploring topics around the natural world and friendships, ‘Poles Apart’ also won the BAFTA for Best Short Animation in 2018.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
