Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure

bigImage Based on Caroline Alexander's best-selling book, "The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition," the giant-screen film SHACKLETON'S ANTARCTIC ADVENTURE will tell the dramatic tale of explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated 1914-1916 British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. While never accomplishing its goal of the first crossing of the Antarctic continent, this expedition has become a testament to heroism and human endurance, with its men surviving nearly two years in the barren, frigid Antarctic after their ship was caught in pack ice and eventually crushed.
