Boréales Federation announces new landmark production

« The Cold Rush »,

 A must-see series in the current climate context

 

 

Paris, September 27th, 2022
For Immediate release

 

Boréales Federation, the label dedicated to the production of premium documentary series and films adressing nature and environmental issues, created by Frédéric Fougea and Federation Studios in 2021, announces the launch of The Cold Rush, their new landmark documentary series after Mediterranean, Life Under Siege.

The year 2022 has shattered many temperature records around the world, It was the bearer of many natural disasters: fires in France, floods in Pakistan and elsewhere, hurricanes in the Caribbean’s… and these phenomena are bound to intensify. In this context, the series addresses with acuity the subject of the adaptability of living nature to global warming.

On every continent, on land, at sea, in the air, climate change is an omnipresent enemy. Its demonstrations take the shape of devastating wildfires, monstrous storms, extreme floods, repeated heat waves and lasting droughts. In this context, the series focuses on the fate of animals and plants, which must leave while there is still time. They rush towards the poles, climb mountains, sink deep into the oceans. It’s the greatest upheaval the living world has experienced for thousands of years. Species that never previously mixed must learn to live together. New ecosystems are emerging.

The Cold Rush draws on recent scientific works, including those presented in the series of conferences “Species on the Move” and those of the international consortium “Bioshifts”, which reveal that more than 50% of animal and plant species are forced to change and adapt their natural habitat due to climate change.

Boréales Federation is headed by Fred Fougea, a renowned producer of high-quality wildlife documentaries with committed messages. The previous co-production of Boreales Federation, Mediterranean, Life Under Siege, is an ode to the protection of the oceans carried by the free-diving champion Guillaume Néry, broadcasted in spring 2022 in prime time on France Televisions and sold to 40 countries.

Mediterranean, Life Under Siege is currently nominated at the Wildscreen Panda Awards, the most renowned competition of animal documentaries, for the award of Best Series from the last 2 years. It is the first time a French series accesses this very prestigious selection.
