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, finding out what drives this dedicated pursuit of science, capturing the true experience of living and working in this extreme environment, and witnessing one of the most significant discoveries about climate change in recent Antarctic science—evidence of a green Antarctica that disappeared with a sudden climate change over 14 million years ago.
The most authentic film about life on the ice since the trailblazing expeditions to Antarctica chronicled nearly a century ago, ICE PEOPLE conveys the vast beauty, the claustrophobia, the excitement and the stillness of an experience set to nature’s rhythm.
Shot in high definition, in temperatures that ranged to -50*C/ -60*F and often in winds that dropped the thermometer far lower, the film spans an Antarctic summer season of 24 hour a day light, from the first glimpse of sun after winter's darkness, to the return of the moonlight months later. Aghion has captured in image and sound the intense experience of Antarctica, and the physical, emotional and even mystical impact of being there.
DVD in English. In Hi Definition.
