A dizzying Arctic set indie romance directed by Kim Nguyen (War Witch), Two Lovers and a Bear combines intense emotional realism with hallucinatory fantasy to extraordinary effect. The film is set deep in Nunavut, a Canadian region so remote the only strangers there are trying to escape a traumatic past. Lucy and Roman are two such people and their love affair is so passionate, it can be self destructive. When Lucy is due to leave, Roman can’t handle it and they end up on a life-changing journey into the blank white wilderness with Roman’s spirit guide, a scene stealing polar bear.
