Product description

South & the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration on Film (DVD +Blu-ray)
Director: Frank Hurley

On 5 January 1922 the ‘heroic age’ of Antarctic exploration drew to a symbolic close with the death of Anglo-Irish explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. Marking this centenary, this collection of films tells a connected story about human endurance and our relationship with the natural world. The birth of film coincided with exploration’s heyday as a competitive sport, a source of national pride and beacon of scientific discovery. The work of pioneer filmmakers in the remotest corners of our planet has fuelled a century of genre-spanning cinema and furthered our understanding of the ravages of climate change.
