The international award-winning documentary, The Antarctica Challenge, is an HD film that explores the past, present and future of scientific exploration on the world’s most mysterious continent with a focus on announcing the latest discoveries on the issue of climate change. From Ernest Shackleton‘s first scientific expedition 100 years ago to today’s scientists, old, new and yet unreleased data raise questions about what is happening on Antarctica and its impact on the rest of the world.
I just viewed the film. Wow. The cinematography was breathtaking. It is more of a science report—don’t worry,the information is fascinating and you’ll want more when the film is over—than a climate change documentary with an agenda. And I was left feeling hopeful that if we—the global citizens—work together, we can overcome this Antarctica challenge. I highly recommend it. Something I will share with my 9-year-old son.
