Huge herds of migrating caribou find themselves center-stage in Oil on Ice, a visually stunning documentary film about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska and the controversy over drilling for oil there.  Their migratory patterns are threatened by drilling for oil in the refuge, a change which in turn alters the lives of the Gwich’in community and every animal related to the caribou.
