CONTINENT OF ICE

Italy, 1974 (MIFF 1975)

Director: Luigi Turolla

The Continent of Ice is the Antarctic. The film first deals with the early explorations and includes some rare film footage of Scott and Amundsen. Then it presents the sparse flora and fauna of the region, shows the lives of the scientists during the long Antarctic winter, working on meteorological and scientific observations. Finally, seeking an explanation for the origins of the Continent, the film advances the latest theories on continental drift.,
