Los Angeles Premier of Under Polaris @ REDCAT October 14-18, 2009


Cloud Eye Control’s latest work, Under Polaristells the story of an epic journey into an Arctic wonderland. A woman embarks upon an incredible mission to preserve the finer elements of humanity in Arctic ice. Along the way, she disguises herself as animals to help her survive the elements-and in the process, learns about the delicate interdependence between humans and nature.
