Filling the giant screen with stunning time-lapse vistas of Antarctica, and detailing year-round life at McMurdo and Scott Base, Anthony Powell’s documentary is a potent hymn to the icy continent and the heavens above.
Antarctica, A Year On Ice. A ticket to the most inhospitable continent
A stunning photography of the challenging landscape of Antarctica, the inhospitable continent located at the southern end of our planet, arrives to conquer our screen and take us to an unimaginable journey into the unknown.
For this purpose, director and amateur photographer Anthony Powell regularly uses his specially adapted cameras to shoot time lapses that make the quotidian life of the few people who populate this place a definitely transcendental experience.
During the film, we meet ordinary people, such as mechanics, firefighters and scientists working at McMurdo and Scott Base stations. They tell us how their lives changed forever, touched by the austral auroras, the landscape of the Mount Erebus Volcano and the lurking and everlasting winter darkness.
