Borealis, Space – TV movie
BOREALIS, set approximately 30 years in the future, tells the story of a DEADWOOD-like frontier town situated in the high Arctic. It explores the political, environmental and social impact of a world in which the polar icecaps have melted and countries are vying for the last vestiges of oil in the Arctic. The ensemble cast features Ty Olsson (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and 2, Battlestar Galactica) as Vic, an ultimate fighter turned entrepreneur who now owns Borealis’s airstrip, hotel and bar, does his best to keep the peace; Michelle Harrison (Eureka) as Alison, a misanthropic environmental guerrilla blogger; Patrick Gallagher (True Blood) as Taq, a techno-handy Inuit local trying to make the best of a bad situation; Christine Horne (Republic of Doyle) as Svetlana, a mysterious and powerful international diplomat whose allegiance is unclear; Greyston Holt (Durham County) as Dan, a seemingly-friendly post-doc from Berkley who may know more than he lets on; Cristina Rosato (Lost Girl) as Bettina, the town’s only prostitute; Bryan Dick (Being Human) as Clive, a British rig worker whose shifting alliances get him into trouble; Mayko Nguyen (Rookie Blue) as Hoshi, the Canadian Secretary of Northern Initiatives, who tries to keep Vic in line and maintain order from her post in Ottawa; Paulino Nunes (Alphas) as Anton, who is determined to lay claim to the Arctic lands and resources for the Russian empire, by any means necessary; and Karan Oberoi (The Listener) as Ramindar, a Canadian Forces sergeant frustrated with his lack of power in the lawless international free zone.
