‘Beyond The Pole’ directed by David L. Williams and starring Rhys Thomas, Stephen Mangan and Alexander Skarsgård will have it’s world premiere tonight at the Warsaw Film Festival.
The drama/comedy tells the story of a documentary film crew that follows the first carbon neutral, organic, vegetarian expedition ever to attempt the North Pole. Simultaneously Saving the Planet and getting into the Guinness Book of Records Brian and Mark hope to kill two birds with one stone. Unfortunately, they have never done anything like this before. Luckily they are followed by Steve, their hardened arctic cameraman, to follow their journey for the digital channel, Adventure Plus. That is until they shoot him. No one said saving the planet would be easy. But does it have to be this hard? This mockumentary is ‘Touching the Void’ with laughs and ‘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.
