SHACKLETON'S ANTARCTIC ADVENTURE (article first published : 2006-08-20)

Experience a treacherous ocean voyage, the unforgiving cold of the Antarctic and a trek over uncharted glaciers in one of the greatest survival stories of all time, Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure, currently running at the IMAX Theatre Gateway.

The large-format film is narrated by Kevin Spacey and tells the true story of polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated 1914-1916 British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Although the expedition never accomplished its goal of the first crossing of the Antarctic continent, it has become a larger-than-life testament to heroism and human endurance.

Despite harsh conditions, all 28 men survived two years in the barren, frigid Antarctic when their ship, the Endurance, was caught in pack ice and eventually crushed.

Shackleton's Antarctic Adventure recounts a true story of epic proportions that is ideally captured in the giant-screen format," said Susanne Simpson, executive producer. "Viewers will feel as if they have been transported back in time to experience what is considered to be the greatest survival story of all time.

The movie is sponsored by Morgan Stanley and Comcast. More information from Toni-Kim Spradbury on 031 570 9200.
