Ice People: A Once-in-a-lifetime journey with Antarctica's 21st century explorers By Anne Aghion, award winning film maker
No one gets to the Antarctic by accident. Conjured out of dreams as a place of the imagination, Antarctica is only arrived at by will—and with what some people call "a bit of ice in the head." So how does the reality measure up to the dream? New York-based, award-winning filmmaker Anne Aghion fulfills an old dream and embarks on a four-month shoot in Antarctica to make a film on a hardy band of scientists and other "ice people." Aghion will show a clip of her upcoming film and discuss the reality of filmmaking on the ice with documentary film curator and programmer Cynthia Kane.
