Antárctida, Um Ano no Gelo


 

A maior parte das expedições que visitam a Antárctida ficam apenas por alguns meses durante a estação de verão.
 
Durante dez anos, incluindo nove invernos, Anthony Powell e a sua equipa permaneceram no planeta gelado para levar a cabo este filme.
 
O filme mostra a experiência de um ano completo no topo do planeta pelo olhar de todos os colaboradores que aí permaneceram para assegurar o funcionemento de todas as estações no continente mais adverso.

Esta é a segundo trailer do documentário "Antarctida, A Year On Ice".

Most film crews that visit Antarctica are only there for a few short months over the summer season. Footage for this film has been meticulously gathered for the last 10 years, including 9 winter-overs, isolated from the rest of the world.


The film shows what it is like to experience a year at the bottom of the planet, through the eyes of the everyday workers who are there to keep the stations running in the harshest continent.

It includes footage meticulously gathered over 10 years, including 9 winters, isolated from the rest of the world, in 24-hour darkness and mind-numbing cold for months at a time.

E agora, nada melhor do que saber mais sobre este fantástico documentário pela voz de Anthony Powell:

"I have been working in Antarctica since 1998, and steadily gathering footage for this project for the last 10 years.

My work has appeared in numerous locations all over the world, including the Natural History Museum in New York, National Geographic Channel, Discovery, and most recently BBC's Frozen Planet series.

Now I am finally ready to present my feature film about what it is like to live 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 everyday workers who are there to keep the stations running in the coldest place on the planet.

(...)

I have recently completed a trip on the National Science Foundation's Artists & Writers Grant, had footage appear in numerous TV shows all over the world, and in various Art Galleries and Museums.

I have plenty more photos to upload when I get a chance, so check back again!
