The search for the subteranian connection between Poles, 3 January 2003
Author: christopher gallagher from USA

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!
