New Zealand Filmmaker Anthony B. Powell’s first film, Antarctica: A Year on Ice is now streaming on NetFlix. It’s not a road everyone would want to travel, but living and working at the South Pole has been a dream of mine since before I was a teenager. (And I really can’t stand cold weather; so the reason is not logical)
This film is inspiring, beautiful, interesting, and funny. You’d be doing yourself a favor to watch it. I found it interesting that living and working near the South Pole is covered by a treaty of 52 country states regulated by a treaty, 54 years old, that predates the Cold War and existed all the way through that era. No military battles, no border disputes. Science is the code.
It’s a road, I would gladly travel…if I can come up with the right reason to be approved by the powers that be.
