FILM INFO:

New 4K restoration from the British Film Institute with original tinting and toning preserved

In 1914 Ernest Shackleton and crew set sail for Antarctica on the 

Endurance

 with the goal of traversing the continent. Cameraman Frank Hurley was onboard to document their odyssey. But just miles from shore, the ship was trapped and then crushed in pack ice. The crew drifted on ice floes for months before landing on a deserted island. With no hope of rescue, Shackleton and five men set out on an 850-mile journey in the roughest seas in the world, in an open boat with only a sextant to guide them. Miraculously they reached South Georgia Island where they crossed mountainous terrain to reach the island’s whaling station. One of the greatest epics in the history of exploration, this is the original 1919 film produced by Shackleton and Hurley.
