The film

Beyond the Pole is the story of the first carbon neutral, vegetarian, organic expedition to the North Pole.

An extraordinarily dangerous expedition made even more dangerous by the fact that the explorers have never done anything like this before.

The film stars:

  • Stephen Mangan (Green Wing)
  • Helen Baxendale (Cold Feet)
  • Rhys Thomas (Fast Show)
  • Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood)

Beyond the Pole is 'Touching the Void' with laughs, 'Withnail and I' on ice. Funny and subversive, it's the story of two men trying to find their place in the world before the end of the world.  

And it asks one question of us all: How far would you go to save the planet?
