Storyline

Unique in the genre of exploration and adventure films, ICE PEOPLE takes you on one of the earth's most seductive journeys-Antarctica. Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker Anne Aghion spent four months "on the ice" with modern-day polar explorers, to find out what drives dedicated researchers to leave the world behind in pursuit of science, and to capture the true experience of living and working in this extreme environment. And, as it turns out, the film also witnesses one of the most significant discoveries about climate change in recent Antarctic science. Intense public focus on climate change has turned the shores of Antarctica into a new tourist mecca, making the earth's coldest continent the hot place to be. But, inland from the penguins and ice floes is a magical Antarctica of volcanoes, boulder-strewn valleys and ominous glaciers.

Gorgeous, meditative documentary on life in Antarcitca
24 May 2010 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Beautifully shot documentary on the day-to-day life of a group of scientists in Antarctica.

Very little in the way of narration, or an obvious organizing principal, this is more meditative, observational (and occasionally more meandering) than your usual documentary, But it somehow that style feels exactly right for the surrealistic majesty of the settings.

Ms. Aghion is proving to be one of our more interesting and brave documentarians. (I'd urge those interested in documentaries to check out her series of 4 films about the aftermath of the genocide in Rwanda).
