Hull Independent Cinema and Yorkshire Silent Film Festival present:
SOUTH – SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON’S GLORIOUS EPIC OF THE ANTARCTIC with live score
Frank Hurley | 1919 | UK | Cert PG | 80 mins | Silent
At Hull Truck Theatre: BUY TICKETS
Yorkshire Silent Film Festival is the UK’s largest celebration of live-scored silent film, taking place every May in cinemas, theatres and community venues across the region. This year HIC hosts the festival once again, with three superb screenings, each accompanied with live music.
South: Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Glorious Epic of the Antarctic is the film record of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s heroic but ill-starred attempt to cross Antarctica in 1914-16. It is both a unique historical document, and a tribute to the indomitable courage of a small party of men who set out on a voyage of discovery that turned into an epic struggle for survival. At the film’s centre is the astonishing sight of the ship, Endurance, trapped in the ice. Photographer Frank Hurley captured his most dramatic shots in the blackness of the polar night by surrounding the ship with twelve magnesium flares. These ghostly images of Endurance in its final hours are among the most unforgettable images in early cinema.
Hull Truck Theatre is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts.
