"The Forbidden Quest"
Directed by Peter Delpeut
A fascinating story that recalls
events surrounding the ill-fated voyage of the "Holland", a ship
that in June 1903, departed for Norway. In fact, this
ship was secretly headed for the South Pole. Nearly 40 years later, the
sole survivor, a ship's carpenter, was finally located in a tiny cottage
in Ireland. There, the old man explained how murder, cannibalism and,
finally, a spiritual awakening befell the men of that fateful voyage. A
harrowing adventure in the tradition of Herman Melville and Joseph Conrad.
"Stunning archival footage, an intriguing plot, and a dash of The
Twilight Zone" (Bill Hoffman, The New York Post).
Dedicated to Frank Hurley. In English.
