Second in the Pocket History series. The incredible survival story of Ernest Shackleton and his 27 crew stranded on the Antarctic ice for 2 years after the crushing of their ship, Endurance. This video is based on journals from the expedition written at the time of the abandonment of the vessel, and takes the form of four diary entries outlining life in the Antarctic and being set adrift on the ice. It is intended for education purposes and is meant to supplement the reading of a book about the heroic adventure.

The silent version of this film took first place in the ‘Stars and Storms 2013’ silent movie competition.

The link below will take you to a PDF comic version of the Endurance movie.
