Storyline

1941: in Ireland, a film maker hears of an aged ship's carpenter who knows the fate of the Hollandia, a Norse ship that set sail in 1905 and vanished. The old salt has canisters of film to prove his tale. We see the footage as he narrates. They sail south in June, 1905, with scores of Siberian huskies aboard, meeting no living soul, the crew ignorant of the trip's purpose, until they reach Antarctica. A mysterious Italian paces the deck; a polar bear appears, and the Italian, possessed, hunts it down. That night, the boatswain explains to the crew how an Arctic bear could be at the South Pole and why the Hollandia has come. Visitors arrive, and the Gothic tale plays out.

The search for the subteranian connection between Poles
3 January 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

To someone who might stumble upon this film on IFC or Sundance by accident ,it will seem to be an authentic documentary on a real Antartic mission in the early parts of the 20th Century. This is perhaps the finest "mocumentary" ever made! Using old newsreel footage of various Artic and Antartic missions,and photographs from the Shackelton expedition,and very cleverly photographed new material,the film's makers have woven a fascinating tale that never happened . The idea of a tunnel connecting the two Poles is of course ludicrous,but it makes for a great film!
