Restored by the British Film Institute, this is the original film recounting one of the most revered expeditions in history - the 1914 journey of the Endurance and its crew to cross the Antarctic continent via the South Pole, led by legendary explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. Frank Hurley was hired to document the trip and in doing so created a remarkable, meditative film on the awe of nature and the struggle of man to journey through its harshest climate.
Preceding short films TBA.
