“Immigrants”: A polar bear and her baby flee due to climate disaster


The heartbreaking meteorites of a climate catastrophe are explored by the animated film “Migrants”. Fifth-year students at the French animation school Pôle D Zoé Devise, Hugo Caby, Antoine Dupriez, Aubin Kubiak and Lucas Lermytte focus on a simple story: a polar bear and its teddy bear leave the Arctic ecosystem as glaciers collapse into water. Their icy home is no longer viable. They try to survive as in a climate with lush vegetation they meet indifferent brown bears.

The award-winning film “Migrants” at various festivals also includes the difficulties faced by refugees when they are displaced due to these causes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugPJi8kMK8Q).
