White on White [Blanco sobre blanco] (2018) takes place in an isolated station in the Arctic. In a rapidly defrosting wilderness, two conflicting characters—Dimitri, an aging misanthropic meteorologist, and Carla, a young documentary filmmaker from Guinea--observe and interact with Nanua, a starving female polar bear irreversibly destined towards death and possible extinction. Nanua’s fragmented interior monologues of loss and despair interweave with the incoherence of human discord, indifference, and broken communication. Realistic, poetic, moving and disturbing White on White mirrors the unforgiving consequences of an unchecked global ecological crisis for animals and humans alike.
