In August, 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton, a renowned explorer, set sail with 27 men on his ship The Endurance. His plan was to be the first expedition to cross the Antarctic continent. His ship was beset in heavy sea ice off the coast of Antarctica and was eventually crushed. Marooned on four feet of ice over 8,000 feet deep water Shackleton and his crew survived some 635 days and nights without proper shelter or rations in some of the harshest conditions imaginable. Eventually by small boat and foot Shackleton was able to get safety and then rescue his entire crew. The Endurance is considered by many experts to be the greatest of all adventures. Miraculously much of the original locations to capture this astonishing story in colour in one of the most remote motion picture shoots ever recorded.
