National Geographic’s Wild_Life Season 3: “The Big Freeze”. 2019.

The Arctic is home to the toughest creatures on Earth, but its real force works quietly underfoot. Every winter sea ice starts small and delicate… It grows over millions of square miles. Like a lung, the Big Freeze breathes life into the Arctic every year in a cycle that impacts the climate across the globe. This is the story from the edge of the Arctic where it all starts: Canada’s Hudson Bay.

The Secret Potion: The Incredible Rise of Cuban Ballet (in post production)

'The Secret Potion' is the surreal story of Cuban ballet - how in only a few years the island went from not having a single dance studio to becoming the promised land for ballet dancers around the world. Every two years, all the major dance companies from Paris, Moscow, London and NY waive their steep fees to have a chance to perform at the Havana International Ballet Festival and recruit more Cuban dancers. How can a tiny communist island in the Caribbean be at the forefront of an art created by 15th-century European aristocrats? Everybody wants to figure out what their secret ingredient is. At the center of it is a blind ballerina who kept her disability in secret and fought all sorts of monsters in a hero's journey to find that secret potion. At 97 years old, the Queen of Cuban ballet Alicia Alonso claims she will only quit at 200.
