Gorgeous, meditative documentary on life in Antarcitca, 24 May 2010
Author: runamokprods from US

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).
