Winner of the Giant Screen Theater Association 2001 Awards for Best Film and Best Cinematography

Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure recounts the extraordinary true story of polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton's 1914-1916 British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, which many consider "the greatest survival story of all time." This expedition has become a testament to heroism and human endurance — Shackleton and all of the 27 members of his crew survived for nearly two years in the barren, frigid Antarctic when their ship, the Endurance, was caught in pack ice and eventually crushed.

The giant-screen film features stunning images of Antarctica plus the remarkable original still photography and 35mm motion picture footage of Frank Hurley, the official photographer for the Endurance expedition.
