The Endurance

A little over a year ago, I was lucky enough to catch an exhibit on Sir Edward Shackleton's Endurance Expedition at the Field Museum of Chicago. Now, it seems Shackleton's doomed Trans-Antarctic Expedition is the topic du jour with a feature film, a TV mini-series and this excellent documentary all scrambling to tell the tale. In 1914, Shackleton and a crew of 28 adventurous men set out for the Antarctic. Shortly after setting off, their ship The Endurance became trapped in pack ice. The ensuing catastrophies that struck the crew of the Endurance are nearly comical in their number and regularity. The fact that these men survived for nearly two years under some of the harshest conditions on Earth, however, makes this story one of the most remarkable tales of survival ever chronicled. The documentary is a tad dry, relying on tried and true Ken Burns-style filmmaking (lots of photographs and dramatically read letters). Still, the story is a stunner and narrator Liam Neeson adds some real dramatic flair to the historical tale. 93 minutes
