Portland Premiere of Antarctica: A Year on Ice

Showtimes

Wednesday, Apr 16

"Getting to Antarctica is tricky and expensive and probably most of us won't manage it. All is not lost, however, because Anthony Powell, a New Zealander who has spent a long time working there, has become fantastically good at time-lapse photography and has kindly made a film so we can all share in the experience. If you're thinking a documentary about Antarctica sounds worthy and dull, and that you've seen plenty of footage of this kind of thing already, you are just plain wrong. One of the best things about this film is that you get new perspectives on the icy continent."

Antarctica: A Year on Ice
Director: 
Anthony Powell
Country: 
New Zealand
Year: 
2013
Runtime: 
91 minutes

This feature-length film reveals what it is like to live and work at the bottom of the planet, in Antarctica, for a full year. The story is not from the point of view of scientists, but of the people who spend the most time there; the everyday workers who keep the stations running in the harshest place on the planet. Filmed over 15 years by Frozen Planet photographer Anthony Powell, the film features a unique insiders point of view, with unparalleled access, and never before seen stunning footage of the deep Antarctic winters.
