“Mawson – Life and Death in Antarctica”

Malcolm McDonald (Australien) - 85 min

Wednesday, 12. Nov. 2008 from 22:00 in Schubertkino       

The Douglas Mawson Antarctic Expedition of 1912 is one of the most amazing feats of endurance of all time. Although his two companions perished, Douglas Mawson survived, but how? In a bold historical experiment, adventurer Tim Jarvis retraces the grueling experience, with similar meager rations, primitive clothing and equipment to uncover what happened to Mawson physically – and mentally – as a man hanging on the precipice of life and death.
