[A movie I shot in McMurdo, 1999-2000. 19minutes.]:
In 1912 , Englishman Sir Robert Scott set out for the South Pole using Siberian Ponies to haul his gear. As the ponies weakened, the courageous explorer devoured them one by one to meet the nutritional requirements of his historic goal. Unfortunately he was beaten to the Pole by the dastardly Norwegian explorer, Roald Amundsen. Scott, out of ponies and nearly defenseless against the relentless and indifferent Antarctic weather, died a miserable death in the middle of nowhere.
