Ernest Shackelton and his much-lesser-known (unfairly, it would seem) helper, Frank Wild. The film's most moving scene involves a "funeral service" for Wild (set up by those who wish to honor him), and even though you, as I, may never have even heard of the guy previously, this section of the doc cannot fail to impress via the deep feelings Wild's descendants and followers clearly possess. The funeral service becomes a tardy but important kind of memorial for this lesser-known explorer.
First Run Features, the movie has its theatrical premier this Friday, April 21, in New York City at the Cinema Village. Being from FRF, it will certainly make its way to home video eventually, with a DVD and maybe streaming options, too.
