His previous two films were The Antarctica Challenge: A Global Warning (2009) and The Polar Explorer (2011), both having aired on CBC in Canada and released in the US by PBS, and screened at United Nations’ climate summits.

The Changing Face of Iceland is expected to be released in the Spring of 2021.
