‘Kingdoms of Fire, Ice & Fairytales’ is an adventure quest by the filmmakers of the ac-claimed wildlife crime thriller ‘STROOP - journey into the rhino horn war’. The two women immerse themselves in filming environments far different from their work of exposing crimes against the planet. This time they’re on a different journey to find three of earth’s epic wilder-nesses, a search for landscapes that inspire awe and wonder, places that are timeless and spaces that reveal what life was like a million years ago. Televisión presenter Bonné de Bod and film director Susan Scott also bring us a unique look at filming in these pristine spots –– temperatures bordering minus 20º in the Arctic Circle to the scalding thermal vents of Yellowstone’s super-volcano and the immense challenge of bringing trees to life in the Black Forest. What will their quest find? That the planet never disappoints. And while beautiful imagery moves us with untouched, incredible nature, the filmmakers seek out legendary stories on overcoming fear and rejuvenating souls. Reminding us that we are all still connected to where we come from. ‘Kingdoms’ motivates us to move into the next part of our lives with healing and positive expectation.
