Director's Statement:

North Pole is an intimate story about acceptance and belonging,

told from the perspective of a teenager girl named Margo, played by an amazing young

actress, Antonija Belazelkoska. Although the film is set among teenagers, I believe that the

questions it poses are relevant for any age, as identity and it shifts and changes as well as the

influence of the others over it, are a lifelong process.
