South with live orchestration by the Psychedelic Cinema Orchestra
When Frank Hurley accompanies Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew on their journey to Antarctica, he brings a slew of camera equipment with him. As he documents every step of their journey, the ship collides with ice and is unable to move. The passengers wait for a rescue for several months, but must move on after the ship finally sinks. Shackleton must ultimately lead his crew through 800 miles of stormy seas and ice to the safety of a whaling station.
Presented with live musical accompaniment by the Psychedelic Cinema Orchestra.
