  • Arctic Limbo - Three Russian weathermen spend a year at a meteo station away from civilization

    48:37

    At the end of the earth, there’s a lonely weather station on the shores of the freezing Barents Sea. It is staffed by three people, each working a year-long work shift. They are waiting for a ship – their only connection to the mainland. Until it comes, they must try and stay sane.
    This is the story of three people who may have the loneliest job in the world. Slava, his young colleague Ustin and Ustin’s wife, Rita, are the only people living in the abandoned village of Khodovarikha. Spending their lives in voluntary confinement on a small spit of land on the northern Barents Sea, they work year-long shifts at a weather station. Once a year, a ship comes to bring them supplies. It's their only chance to go on holiday to the mainland or to quit their job completely. Until that day comes, they must find a way to live and work together amicably.
    There isn’t much to do in the former village of Khodovarikha. Abundant local wildlife provides ample opportunities for hunting and fishing, while the harsh beauty of the pristine, natural landscape offers a magnificent, meditative backdrop for those who can appreciate being on their own. It seems as though time itself flows differently here than on the mainland. Soon, the lives the weathermen led before arriving here begin to sink into oblivion.
    Entries in a log kept by their predecessors provide evidence of the dangers posed by roaming animals, as well as wild behavior by former weathermen in this unsociable environment. Workers here have been known to lose their minds and their tempers, leading to lethal consequences.
    It definitely takes an extraordinary type of person to do this job. Few can enjoy the hermetic existence that is part and parcel of this lifestyle. Another difficulty faced by Khodovarikha's inhabitants is the importance of maintaining a good relationship with those they live and work with daily. As history shows, this skill is essential not only for creating a healthy environment but for the safety of everyone involved. Finally, it takes courage to be able to stay so far away from civilization, as, in the event of an emergency, there is no guarantee that help will arrive in time. By and large, those who work here have only themselves to count on. So, what was it that attracted Slava, Ustin and Rita to this unusual and very demanding line of work?

  • On Thin Ice - The Secrets of Nature

    53:17

    With predictions of polar bears being extinct in 50 years, On Thin Ice follows bears as they emerge from their dens and navigate their rapidly changing environment. On Thin Ice shows how the frozen expanses of the Arctic are shrinking at an unprecedented rate, with the very survival of the polar bear literally on thin ice.

    Over the last year, producer/presenter Greg Grainger has mounted a series of expeditions across the Arctic to document the plight of the polar bear.

    * Researcher Nick Lunn tranquillises polar bears from his helicopter, cataloguing the diminishing health of the Western Hudson Bay bear population and finding the remains of a bear thought to have died from starvation.

    * Close and wild encounters with rangers from the Polar Bear Alert team as they chase bears out of the township of Churchill, built in the middle of the bears’ migration route. Follow one family of bears that have to be darted after they attempt to break into a building food for food, while another bold bear becomes trapped inside a garbage truck.

    * Hungry bears and husky dogs fighting one another at an isolated weather station north of Norway.

    * Polar bears in the wild as they capture seals and devour whale carcasses.

    There is no more iconic symbol of strength and adaptation to survival than the polar bear.... an animal so superbly suited to its environment that it thrives in the most hostile corners of the planet – until now.

    On Thin Ice - A moving account of Polar bears struggling to survive as climate change melts their summer hunting ground - the Arctic sea ice.

  • Voices from the Tundra

    1:5:41

    In northeastern Siberia, above the Arctic Circle, live the Tundra Yukagirs, nomadic reindeer herders. Sixty-three of them still speak Yukagir, a uniquely musical language that turns melodic as storytellers relate traditional tales of Yukagir history. Only two elderly masters of this skill remain. Amsterdam linguist Cecilia Odé has made repeated trips to the remote corner of eastern Siberia that the Yukagirs call home to capture their language and preserve it for posterity. A diagnosis of metastatic cancer threatened to end these trips, but a period of remission enabled her to return to the land of the Yukagirs once again, perhaps for the last time.

    Synopsis
    Cecilia's journey features all the ingredients of a fascinating and inspiring documentary: a dedicated scholar whose life work is to preserve a vanishing language; a people torn between, on the one hand, age-old traditions and the challenges of subsistence in the brutal cold of Siberia and, on the other, the seductions of an easier life in the region's towns and cities; the primeval power of the songs retained by aged Yukagirs raised by parents who could recall pre-Soviet times and hopeful scenes of schoolchildren learning their ancestral language using materials developed with Cecelia's help; the romance of lassos, reindeer herds, and deerskin tents pitched on the ice.
    But the film's strongest asset is the heart-warming friendship that has developed between Cecilia and the Yukagirs. This friendship allows the filmmakers to enter the Yukagir community in an unforced manner and gain access to the people's innermost thoughts. The trust and confidence developed through Cecelia's longstanding relationships with members of the Yukagir community enable the filmmakers to produce a compellingly genuine portrait of extraordinary people living their lives in distant Siberia and capture frank discussions about their disappearing language, their traditional way of life, and their efforts to keep their culture alive.

  • We Live in the Arctic, 1947

    1:18:02

    We Live in the Arctic is a silent film by Harmon “Bud” Helmericks and Constance Helmericks, circa 1947. The film details the Helmericks' lives as homesteaders in the Brooks Mountain Range of Alaska, and as explorers of northern Alaska and Canada. In 2015, the original 16mm film was preserved by the Alaska Film Archives through funding from the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF).

    Bud Helmericks and his first wife Constance (Connie) Helmericks spent more than a decade living in and exploring northern Alaska during the 1940s and 1950s. Constance was the best-selling author of eight non-fiction books, five detailing their lives and adventures in the far north. Films that the couple shot on 16mm color film were the subject of national lecture tours. Shot with great care and artfulness under extreme living conditions, these films depict the unique lives of the Helmericks family, as well as the rapidly-changing lives of small groups of coastal and inland Iñupiat peoples during the era of pre-Statehood and pre-pipeline Alaska. Bud and Connie's daughter, Jean Aspen, continues the family story in her books and documentaries at

    Detailed summary information for We Live in the Arctic was provided by the filmmakers. According to these notes, the film includes scenes of a Cessna 140 (the “Arctic Tern”) taking off from Tucson, Arizona; aerial views enroute to Alaska; Grand Prairie, Alberta; aerial views of Hughes, Alaska; Brooks Range mountains; landing at Takahula Lake; Connie and Bud at their log cabin at Takahula Lake; snowshoeing and seeing a “snow doughnut” that has rolled down from the mountain; Bud splitting wood and Connie collecting water; ice fishing on Takahula Lake while sunbathing; planting a garden; Connie climbing Takahula Peak; kayaking on the Alatna River; airplane flight 300 miles north to the Arctic Ocean; cooking a meal of caribou and cornmeal along the Arctic Ocean; the village of Paulatuk in Canada; Royal Canadian Mounted Police at Cambridge Bay on Victoria Island; power schooner (the “Tudlik”) traveling from Banks Land; Inuit hunters cooking caribou in northern Canada; Lakes Peter and Schrader in Alaska; filmmakers Bud and Connie; Inupiat family identified in notes as Nanny and George, son Apiak, and daughters Lydia and Martha; Nanny tending fishnet set in the Arctic Ocean; Lydia eating dried meat with an uluruk; Martha holding a mirror and applying lipstick; a woman identified in notes as Bessie with homemade guitar made from a Prestone can; whale boat in Arctic Ocean; people identified in notes as Oolak or Job, Little Jacob, Carrie with little Maugaulak or Mark, and Richard; Chandler Lake; group of inland Inupiat or Nunamiut at Chandler Lake, including people identified in notes as baby Franklin Roosevelt and his father, Simon Paneak; caribou skin tents covered with canvas; bear damage at cabin; Connie picking berries; Bud and Connie hunting moose; Connie rendering tallow; Connie chinking cabin with moss; Bud making a cabin window; Bud demonstrating winter wear; fishing through ice; Bud cutting ice blocks; and heating the airplane engine before take-off.

    In 2015, the original film was preserved through funding from the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF); Reflex Technologies of Burbank, California, scanned both reels of original film and created digital DPX files, which were then output to new 16mm internegative and answer print film stocks by Video & Film Solutions of Rockville, Maryland. The original films, new internegative and answer print films, and digital files are all being preserved by the Alaska Film Archives at University of Alaska Fairbanks.

  • ???????? We Are Still Here: A Story from Native Alaska l Al Jazeera Correspondent

    47:23

    Every summer, Amira Abujbara boards a nine-seater plane at a tiny air taxi office. It is the same plane, with the same pilot, that she has flown in almost every year of her childhood.

    The 50-minute flight will take her over a snowy mountain range, a volcano and an elaborate tundra of blueberries and mushrooms, tea leaves and caribou moss, wildflowers and spider webs.

    She is heading to her mother’s childhood home and the place where she spends her summers – the remote Alaskan village of Iliamna. Without any roads connecting it to the outside world, this is her only way of going ‘home’.

    Iliamna, which is an Athabascan word meaning “big ice” or “big lake” sits on the shore of the lake that shares its name. The largest in Alaska, it spans more than 2,500 square kilometres, is pure enough to drink from and is home to the biggest sockeye salmon run in the world.

    Iliamna shares a post office, school, airport, medical clinic and two small stores with the neighbouring village, Newhalen. Together, they have fewer than 300 residents.
    It is a far cry from her father’s home country, Qatar, where Amira spends the rest of the year.

    Her father is Qatari and her mother is Dena’ina - a subset of the Athabascan Alaska Natives.

    Amira was born in Alaska and is registered as an Alaska Native.
    When her father married her mother he promised her parents that they would return regularly and so Amira and her sister spent their summers in Iliamna.

    Their grandmother ran a bed and breakfast for fishermen, so she would help make the beds, clean and prepare the meals for her guests. She learned how to subsistence fish – catching, smoking, brining and canning salmon during the summer months to store for the rest of the year.

    For the villagers, their home is a beautiful and fruitful land, but it is also a place of incredible hardships.
    Tiny villages are dwarfed by the vast wilderness that surrounds them, and while the region is rich in natural resources, many Alaska Natives struggle to remain above the poverty line. According to the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, over any five-year period between 1993 and 2013, an average of 11 percent of the state’s rural population moved into urban areas. Those aged 18 to 24 are the most likely to leave. But life in the city can be overwhelming for those used to the safety net of a tight-knit rural community.

    Then there are the alcohol and substance abuse rates: in Alaska, age-adjusted rates of alcohol-induced deaths are 71.4 per 100,000 for Alaska Natives and 12.1 for whites.

    Suicide rates for Alaska Natives are almost four times the national average, and Alaska Natives are far more likely to succumb to each of the state’s leading causes of death – cancer, heart disease and unintentional injury – than their white counterparts.

    In Alaska, Native children are nearly three times as likely as white children to die before their fifth birthday.

    The situation Alaska Natives face can, perhaps, best be summarised by a note in the minutes of a meeting of Newhalen residents. In a list of wishes for the community’s future, one states simply: “To still be here.”

    But why is this community so at risk and will a proposed gold and copper mine, located close to the villages, endanger it further still? Residents know it offers the promise of jobs, but there are fears it could ruin the salmon run, and with it, their way of life.

    We Are Still Here tells the story of a community fighting to preserve its culture and its connection to the land.

  • Fishing for Herself. A fisherwoman’s lonely life on Sakhalin Island

    27:07

    Sometimes we all feel like keeping a distance from everyone else, retreating to a remote corner of the world and living like a hermit. Few of us ever actually do it though. This young fisherwoman from the icy island of Sakhalin has opted for a life of solitude but was it really a choice?

    Anna was born on the remote and icy Sakhalin island. She grew up in a children’s home and when she left, decided that fishing would be her livelihood. It is hard work but Anna strives to be independent and rely on no one but herself. She wants to be equal to men in everything she does and refuses to be seen as a weak woman in need of anyone’s help. She works all day and in her free time plays ice hockey for an otherwise all-men team.

    Anna loves her cats and takes care of her new-found relatives, but still doesn’t believe she needs anyone else in her life and thinks she’s better off living alone. She still bears a grudge against the people, mainly women, who caused her harm in her childhood and teens. It’s hard to let go of her past. Perhaps that’s why she has never fully embraced her present reality, still looking and behaving like a child, despite her age. It seems as though Anna lives in a world of her own, carefully guarded against intruders, refusing to get close to anyone, in case she might have to change her ways.

    Sometimes, she thinks she might like to try and start her own family but as she’s never had a positive example to follow, she admits she has no idea where to begin or even what a real family should be like. So she sticks to the life she knows; ensuring her own survival, never trusting anyone completely and fishing, for herself, in the icy lakes of Sakhalin Island.

    However, even a loner like Anna can harbour dreams of a very different life, no matter how improbable that may seem at the moment.

  • Inuit Observations on Climate Change - Full-Length Version

    42:15

    This video documents the impacts of climate change from an Inuvialuit perspective. On Banks Island in Canada's High Arctic, the residents of Sachs Harbour have witnessed dramatic changes to their landscape and their way of life. Exotic insects, fish and birds have arrived; the sea ice is thnner and farther from the community, carrying with it the seals upon which the people depend for food; the permafrost is melting, causing the foundations of the community's buildings to shift and an inland lake to drain into the ocean. In the fall, storms have become frequent and severe, making boating difficult. Thunder and lightning have been seen for the first time.

    A devoted mother who walked out of her house 3 years ago and disappeared, leaving behind her husband and their young baby.
    A motorsports mechanic who drove away from his home one morning and vanished. His wife of 10 years is leading the search for him.

    A middle aged man who walked away from his life without any warning, leaving his brother and police officers baffled.
    Set against the backdrop of these mysterious disappearances, this film reveals the compelling stories of the relatives left behind. It follows family members driven to extraordinary lengths by their search for answers, closure, and the hope of bringing their missing loved ones home.

  • NORTH POLE ADVENTURE | North Pole Ice Airport: Episode 3 | Reel Truth Documentaries

    45:37

    With a lifespan of only four weeks, Barneo is a magnet for people passionate about living on the edge. Visitors include not only scientists and explorers, but also skydivers, a couple looking for the ultimate wedding venue, extreme golfers who think nothing of teeing off in temperatures of 35 degrees below zero and the hardy souls whose idea of fun is to run the notorious Arctic Marathon.

    The polar region changes the people who visit it and the cameras are with them as they face up to themselves and the challenges posed by this awe inspiring, unforgiving landscape. This week, dog-handler Rafael is guiding his team of huskies to the North Pole. Lead dog Wally is retiring, but will new recruit Nelson be up to the job?

    On his long, cold adventure Rafael reveals the unique bond between man and beast and the sadness felt when tragedy strikes. Polar guide Eric is an old friend of Camp Barneo, but this season his trip to the top of the world presents an even greater challenge. His inexperienced group of business men want to ski to the Pole against the flow of the ice drift, meaning that for every two steps forward, they will drift one step back.

    Also visiting the Arctic is 17-year-old Eton schoolboy, Parker. While his friends are busy revising for their A-levels, Parker is heading to 90° North to collect snow samples for a climate-change project. Finally, after a tough, action-packed four weeks at this unique ice station, it is time for the team to pack up camp Barneo and head home to their families before the ice starts to drift and melt again. For the next 11 months no human will set foot on this extraordinary spot on the planet, but planning for next year has already begun...

  • Reinventing Cuba, A CCTV America documentary

    56:10

    Everyone’s talking about Cuba and the U.S. mending fences, but what will Cuba be exporting in greatest numbers? It’s a little-explored question that will lead us to understand who Cubans really are.
    CCTV delves into baseball, art, entrepreneurship and medicine: Cuba has a top-notch pharmaceutical industry, can it compete with Big Pharma? Because of Cuba’s strong education system, the answer is “yes,” Cuba can compete. In fact it already does, and its successes have created an overlooked but burgeoning middle class.
    These are the people at the forefront of what will likely be Cuba’s future as it moves into this new era. We see what they’re up to, and where they think their country will go. These are all stories of hope that come together to explain the heart of the country.

  • Whats it really like at the North Pole?

    2:53

    What is it really like at the North Pole?

    The North Pole, also known as the Geographic North Pole or Terrestrial North Pole, is defined as the point in the Northern Hemisphere where the Earth's axis of rotation meets its surface. The North Pole is the northernmost point on the Earth, lying diametrically opposite the South Pole.

    Two satellites in the Joint Polar Satellite System constellation, NOAA-20 and the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) circle the Earth from pole-to-pole 14 times each day as the planet rotates on its axis. The two satellites are separated by 50 minutes, which allows researchers to see ice moving in the Arctic using looped imagery.

    Unlike Antarctica, there’s no land at the North Pole. Instead, it’s all ice that’s floating on top of the Arctic Ocean. Over the past four decades, scientists have seen a steep decline in both the amount and thickness of Arctic sea ice during the summer and winter months.

Some of the documentaries are made just to discredit some particular person, party, organization, system etc, but most of them here on TDF are non biased, without prejudice and worth watching.

  • Antarctica: Ready for winter. Antarctic winter is coming: research crews prepare Russia’s stations

    52:07

    More films about surviving winter:
    Antarctica is key to understanding our world because it is so deeply interconnected with the Earth’s climate and oceans. Geological sampling on this frozen continent provides insight into climate changes over the past million years, allowing scientists to study global warming in a historical context.

    Russia has been at the forefront of Antarctic exploration for almost two centuries. Since the First Russian Antarctic Expedition in 1820, led by F. F. Bellingshausen and M.P. Lazarev, its scientists have made significant contributions to the investigation and especially the mapping of Antarctica. From that time on, extensive research has been carried out, first by several Soviet and then Russian institutions, and the country now maintains five permanent southern polar stations.

    The trouble is that, despite advances in modern transport, the only reliable means of reaching the world’s southernmost continent is by sea. The diesel-electric scientific research vessel, “Academic Fyodorov” was almost made for the job and this time, Russia’s polar research fleet flagship is on a mission to visit two year-round Antarctic stations, “Progress” and “Novolazarevskaya”.

    “Fyodorov”, the only scientific ship able to reach Antarctica without an ice-breaker convoy, has been through thick and thin over the years and so has its crew! The most established member is 86-year-old, Arnold Budretsky, a polar exploration pioneer. There was nothing but ice and stone before he and his fellow explorers first landed on that frozen desert. Arnold himself has taken charge of opening 10 Antarctic stations, and has an impressive reserve of knowledge and experience to pass on to the next generation of explorers.

    Antarctica is notorious for its unpredictable weather and harsh climate and at sea, the explorers have only themselves to rely on, there are no other vessels for hundreds of miles and nothing but icebergs for company. Just getting to Antarctica takes 6 months, a challenge on its own.

    There is much for newcomers to learn before settling in as a real part of this small crew: managing food storage for example, and a curious way to keep eggs fresh! People from all walks of life are eager to embark on this voyage to experience the difficulties that research station life entails, which include 24-hour shifts.

    The hardship makes Antarctica the ultimate survival test. For many though, the severe but beautiful environment becomes almost addictive, so much so that for many, it feels like home.

    The diesel-electric ice ship Akademik Fyodorov travels to Antarctica, where two of Russia's research stations will receive enough supplies to last them until next summer as winter quickly approaches.

  • On Thin Ice Part 3 of 4

    7:58

    NBC Bay Area Meteorologist Rob Mayeda travels to the glaciers of Alaska to share an up-close look at climate change and how it's affecting the Bay Area.
    Not only is climate change real in Alaska, you'll find that its happening very quickly. Nowhere else on the planet will you find temperatures trending this much warmer than average in the last 30 years.

    Sea ice and glaciers are thinning and retreating, greatly impacting the local ecosystem, hinting at changes we'll see living in the Bay Area during our lifetime.
    NASA animations show thinning Arctic ice and shrinking/shattering glaciers, but seeing these changes first-hand in Alaska really emphasize how profound they are and what effect they have on the future.

    Join Rob on this personal tour of Alaska's melting glaciers and discuss how climate change will impact the Bay Area in the not so distant future.
