Kingdoms of Fire, Ice and Fairytales
Kingdoms of Fire, Ice and Fairytales is an adventure quest captured by the two filmmakers of the internationally acclaimed, award-winning wildlife crime-thriller Stroop: Journey into the Rhino Horn War. In their new, very different documentary, they explore three of earth’s most epic wildernesses; spaces that inspire awe and wonder; places where one can feel what life was like a million years ago. Bonné de Bod and Susan Scott reveal the challenge of filming in these pristine spots – from temperatures bordering minus 20º in the Arctic Circle to the scalding thermal vents of Yellowstone’s supervolcano.
And what do they learn on their quest? That the planet never disappoints. They not only seek out beautiful, unspoiled nature but legendary stories of overcoming fear and rejuvenating the soul, reminding us that we are all still connected to where we come from.
