Winner 2015: Killer Whales – Fins of Change

Through outstanding cinematography and thorough research, the film looks into how climate change is introducing a new predator to the region, affecting the food chain in the Arctic. The film's dramatic story tells of the scientists’ investigations, as well as how adaptation is important for the survival of polar bears and the local Inuit people in the light of the melting ice and the appearance of a new predator in the local eco system due to these changes.
