This short documentary studies the geological evolution that has gone on for millions of years in the High Arctic. Following the evidence of glaciers that have advanced and receded, the film also traces life forms that have changed with the climate.
“This is my favourite NFB film. It is a fantastic look into how the arctic was portrayed to Canadians. Note how evil everything is made out to be. No wonder we neglected the arctic for so long. ”
