Australian filmmaker Frank Hurley’s stunning record of Shackleton’s 1914-17 Antarctic expedition.
Dir Frank Hurley
With live piano accompaniment
Australian filmmaker Frank Hurley’s record of Shackleton’s 1914-17 Antarctic expedition is also a document of life – human and otherwise – striving to survive in the most adverse climatic conditions imaginable. More than a mere chronicle of an epic undertaking, the film is visually magnificent, its images of the vast frozen wilderness composed with a meticulous attention to framing and light.
Live piano accompaniment will be from Andrew Youdell on Sunday 3 September and from John Sweeney on Monday 4 September.
