A century after it was first made, the extraordinary, original film of Sir Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated expedition to Antarctica returns to the big screen in spectacular style.

A record of one of the greatest survival stories in the history of exploration, South is the original film - exquisitely photographed by Frank Hurley - of Shackleton's 1914-1916 voyage to Antarctica, during which his ship, the Endurance, was crushed by ice, stranding the hardy and resilient crew.

Re-released to mark the centenary of Shackleton's death, South has been digitally remastered by BFI National Archive from its original restoration, and plays with a stunning newly-commissioned score by Neil Brand.
