90° South: With Scott to the Antarctic

Directed by Herbert G. Ponting

Release: 1933
Runtime: 72
Country: U.K.
Language: English

This spellbinding chronicle of Captain Robert Scott's race for the South Pole was originally released in 1913 under a different name. Twenty years after Scott's untimely death, famed photographer and adventurer Herbert Ponting produced and narrated a re-release titled 90° South. Ponting quotes directly from Scott's journal, discovered alongside his frozen body, revealing the heartbreaking last days of his tragic expedition. Despite the captain's failed return trip, the film's hauntingly beautiful imagery of icey caverns, frozen landscapes and Antarctic wildlife act as lasting testaments to his legacy and humanity's sense of adventure.

"Unparalleled artistry, inspiring in every sense."  –  Kevin Brownlow, The War, the West, and the Wilderness
