Film Screening: Great White Silence

The Great White Silence, GB 1924 (remastered in 2011), 103 min, directed by Herbert Ponting

The documentary was made by Herbert Ponting from 1910 to 1913 as a photographer and cameraman for the expedition of the polar explorer Robert Falcon Scott in Antarctica. He recorded scientific work in the camp, preparations for the trip to the pole, the majesty of the ice massif and the life of killer whales and penguins. The film, first shown in 1924 in a toned version, was restored by the British Film Institute to mark the centenary of the expedition.
