Irish-born Sir Ernest Shackleton, a heroic explorer, was almost obsessed with tying his name to Antarctica. Failing to be the first to reach the South Pole, he still returned, determined to make a sea crossing to the continent and to be the first to reach the South Pole by land. His ship was trapped near Elephant Island in ice and Shackleton set out with some of his crew to South Georgia, a trip of @1,300 km, on foot and by boat to seek help.
He succeeded. And saved his crew. This incredibly brave and selfless achievement was brought to the big screen, giant actually. “Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure” is an IMAX film, released in 2001 that tells the true story. A highly recommended reconstruction of how the frozen continent can enthrall.
