The Antarctica Challenge: A Global Warning

The international award-winning documentary, The Antarctica Challenge, is a TV-hour HD film that explores the past, present and future of scientific exploration on the world’s most mysterious continent with a focus on announcing the latest discoveries on the issue of climate change. From Ernest Shackleton’s first scientific expedition 100 years ago to today’s scientists, old, new and yet unreleased data raise questions about what is happening on Antarctica and its impact on the rest of the world.

Wow. Beautifully and objectively done. It is more of a science report than a climate change documentary with an agenda. And I was left feeling hopeful that if we–the global citizens–work together, we can overcome this Antarctica challenge. I highly recommend it. Even my 9-year old son was fascinated. (disclaimer: I am not a professional documentary film reviewer).


Recent winner of the coveted Kodiak Award for Best Documentary Feature Film 2010, The Antarctica Challenge has won 10 international awards (so far). Here are just a few others…

  • Los Angeles Award of Excellence 2010 | Best Documentary Film
  • Canada International Film Festival 2010 | Best Documentary Feature
  • The Yosemite Film Festival Silver Sierra Award 2009 | Environmental Films

The latest climate change scientific data collected from the Arctic and Antarctica during International Polar Year will be announced by 2,500 polar scientists from around the world in Oslo, Norway June 8 to 12. What they unveil will drastically change the way the world thinks about climate change.
