Antarctica: A Year on Ice

What's it like to live in Antarctica for a full year? Well, it's cold, for one. But his adventure documentary goes into a bit more detail by concentrating on the highs and lows of the several thousand brave souls who volunteer to work at research stations across the frozen continent. The film is the work of Anthony Powell, who served as a communications director at the McMurdo Station for more than a decade. In his spare time he interviewed coworkers and took digital photographs of the icy environment that he then painstakingly assembled into awe-inspiring, time-lapse footage. Yes, the nature shots are gorgeous, but it's the glimpses into everyday life that will stick with you. 92 minutes PG.
