We see so many images everyday. The question is can an image still make people care? Bear Witness: Subarctic is a 2022 documentary short film about sea ice loss and its impact on polar bear populations in Canada. As sea ice shrinks to record lows, and polar bears spend more time on land, a photographer sets out to document what the increased interactions between bears and people mean for communities living in the North. In pursuit of an image that might still stir us to act, we all become witnesses to the consequences of a warming world.
