Anthony Powell's chilling documentary is headed for Blu-ray in March. You can pre-order it here.
In an early announcement to retailers, Music Box Films is preparing 'Antarctica: A Year on Ice' for Blu-ray on March 24.
The research stations scattered throughout Antarctica host a close-knit international population of scientists, technicians and craftsmen. Isolated from the rest of the world, enduring months of unending darkness followed by periods when the sun never sets, Antarctic residents experience firsthand the beauty and brutality of the most severe environment on Earth. Capturing epic battles against hellacious storms, quiet reveries of nature's grandeur, and everyday moments of work and laughter, this unique documentary shows a steadfast community thriving in a land few humans have experienced. Using specially modified cameras and spectacular time-lapse photography, filmmaker Anthony Powell captures the splendor of the region like never before, giving testament to the planet's natural wonders, humanity's thirst for adventure, and the emotional extremes that accompany a year within the last pristine wilderness on the planet.
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
