2014 - ANTARCTICA: A YEAR ON ICE, a fascinating film with superb stop motion photography

A New Zealand radio technician named John Powell built his own time lapse cameras and proceeded to film life in Antarctica over a period of a year although it apparently took him 10 years to photograph this film

The film features stunning time lapse photography and breathtaking shots of this continent.  Powell also focuses on the support staff that keep the various research stations functioning  with a particular and interesting segment on what it's like to live in an environment which is completely dark about 4 months of the year.

Highly recommended.  Very well done.

92 minutes.
