Antarctic Heritage Trust is proud to present short films from its Inspiring Explorers’ Expeditions. Produced as a way to share the world’s greatest polar exploration stories and to connect people with the spirit of exploration.
In Nansen’s Footsteps shares the story of four young explorers who ski 560km across the Greenland ice cap, in an epic expedition honouring Fridtjof Nansen’s first crossing 130 years ago. The explorers included Kiwis Brando Yelavich and Hollie Woodhouse and Australians Keith Parsons and Bridget Kruger. They faced unprecedented levels of snow, Arctic hurricanes and sickness, in a season where only a handful of teams made it across the ice successfully.
Mt Scott: An Adventure to the Antarctic Peninsula shares the story of four young Kiwi explorers who travel to Antarctica to attempt a guided ascent of Mt Scott – named for early polar explorer Robert Falcon Scott. Filmmaker Simon Lucas, along with William Pike, Sylvie Admore and Isobel Ewing all faced their own challenges in their quest to reach the summit.
The Last 36 tells the story of Antarctic Heritage Trust’s Inspiring Explorers’ Expedition to retrace the epic journey of Shackleton, Worsley and Crean, as they crossed South Georgia for the first time in a desperate bid to save the lives of their stranded Endurance crew mates.
