North Pole Expedition 2018
“I'm looking for ordinary women for a quite extraordinary expedition. I'll teach you what you need to know, and you'll have to cope with temperatures around -40 degrees Celsius, shifting ice and the threat of polar bears. If you're willing to work hard, I can help you get to the northernmost point on our planet",were the words used by top British polar explorer Felicity Aston to recruit a dozen women from Europe and the Arab world for an international expedition to the North Pole.
More than 1000 girls from all over the world applied. Nataša Briški was selected to be part of the 11-member team that set foot on the North Pole on 21 April 2018 after several joint preparations.
Polar Exposure: An All-Women's Expedition to the North Pole
A gripping account of a spectacular journey. In words and pictures, members of the expedition recall the gruelling training in Iceland and Oman, the detailed preparations and daunting conditions in the Arctic, and the triumphant moments when they reached the North Pole.
From the start of the preparations to its destination, the 2018 North Pole Euro-Arab Expedition was accompanied by a film crew led by renowned American filmmaker Holly Morris. Exposure is a story of perseverance, courage, dialogue between different cultures and survival in the harshest of conditions. It is the story of an expedition that may be one of the last to reach the northernmost point of our planet.
