Storyline

This feature-length film reveals what it is like to live and work at the bottom of the planet, in Antarctica, for a full year. The story is not from the point of view of scientists, but of the people who spend the most time there; the everyday workers who keep the stations running in the harshest place on the planet. Filmed over 15 years by Frozen Planet photographer Anthony Powell, the film features a unique insiders point of view, with unparalleled access, and never before seen stunning footage of the deep Antarctic winters.

Great place to find your Humanity
9 October 2013 | by nelsonmarquez1967See all my reviews

After watching Antarctica: A Year on Ice, you'll run out of superlatives to describe the experience, I still have a hard time explaining my experience over there due that people that have not been there can't really get it. But this Movie will give you a glimpse of the experience one have or will have if you get to be there.

But really How do you share your thoughts about a place which defies description? a place vital to our planet, but which the vast majority will never go there.

Why The title? After a few Combat tours one does lose some Humanity but working in Antarctica it help me deal wit the war demons. It was my experience but each person is different

Eventually I may go back wit my wife :D
