Unknown Antarctica - About the film

The first day is calm. Deceitful sun shines continuously, day and night. Frightening silence in one's ears. It flows in from everywhere; it literally hurts. And the awful cold. It hurts too. Real and imaginable. Wherever you look there is just an endless white desert. Snow and sky. Nothing else. Just two colours: white and blue. And mainly the absolute purity. In your head, under your feet and everywhere around. A non-sharable experience. Twenty four million square kilometres of ice and them. Alone, somewhere in the middle of the world's coldest continent. They decided to walk on foot from the edge of the Antarctic continent as far as its highest point
