The Blinding Sea

I am nearing completion of the feature-length version of my film The Blinding Sea. Working with a new editor, Guillaume Falardeau, has been a terrific experience. Alex Charrier is doing a superb job of sound editing. Marie Frenette has become associate producer. I have put distribution of the mid-length version on hold for the time being.

The feature-length version of the film goes more deeply into the psychological world of polar explorers from 1897 to 1928, such as Adrien de Gerlache, Roald Amundsen, Frederick Cook, Robert Falcon Scott, Teddy Evans, Ernest Shackleton and Joseph-Elzéar Bernier, drawing on the rich story-telling and experience of their descendants Bernard de Gerlache, Anne-Christine and Johan Amundsen, Gloria Corbould, Falcon Scott, Julian Evans, Alexandra Shackleton and Paul Terrien, as well as Bob Konana, George Konana, Paul Ikuallaq and four other Inuit descendants of Quloeq, the young Inuk woman who had known Amundsen well during his sojourn in Nunavut in 1903-1905, and had hoped to marry him. In making this film, I have traveled extensively in the Arctic and Antarctic. What an adventure!

If you would like to see the film, there will be several options. A DVD will be available in both NTSC and PAL versions, with closed captioning, and a universal Blu-ray will be available with closed captioning. However, this website will not host e-commerce functions, nor will it collect and store confidential information about you. Stay tuned!
