Walking With Shackleton

Posted by on in Короткие документальные фильмы


Sublimely voiced by actor Chris Sullivan («This is Us» / «Guardian’s of the Galaxy»), select quotes from Sir Earnest Shackleton 1909 Antarctic expedition are juxtaposed against recent breathtaking footage to the same journey aboard a modern luxury vessel.

The result is haunting, beautiful, humorous, and inspiring. Reliving the same overwhelming awe while being forced to recognize truly how far we have come as a civilization.

From the filmmaker:

While on board for an assignment for Get Lost Magazine, I happened to pick up «The Heart of the Antarctic» by Shackleton in the ship’s library. I immediately found it amazing how we were experiencing the same incredible sights, having the same reactions and emotions to this amazing corner of the earth, yet without any of the heartache, impending danger, or discomfort that Shackleton and his team went through. It’s a true testament to the amazing job the Quark team does to bring you to these unique and extraordinary places on earth, safely, but always with the same overwhelming sense of adventure.
