South (FREE Screening)

Sir Ernest Shackleton’s glorious epic of the Antarctic, digitally re-mastered and IN CINEMAS for a limited time! An epic that demands to be seen on the big screen!

Considered the world’s first documentary feature, South is the original film – exquisitely photographed by Frank Hurley – of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 to 1916 Endurance expedition to Antarctica, during which the ship was crushed by ice, stranding the crew.

Notable for its stunningly dramatic images and the matter-of-fact way in which it deals with the actions of the explorer in the face of death, the film has been digitally remastered by BFI National Archive with a newly commissioned score by Neil Brand.

"Watching these images, we are absorbed, as we often are with silent film, in a reverie that is a collaboration with the images." - Chicago Sun-Times

"The sheer vividness of these personalities scorches out of the screen." - Guardian
