The Last Continent

An intrepid team of scientists heads down to the Antartic to spend a year in the frozen wasteland to study the effects of global warming. They get there and it’s so warnm that none of their plans can be carried out. The ice doesn’t freeze so they can’t properly anchor their ship. The temerature stays unseasonable high, so the food supplies they buried in the snow thaw and rot. The weather is so awful they can’t even get off the boat for very long, causing tempers to flare on a regular basis. Never has a botched expedition made for better filmmaking, all beautifully narrrated by Donald Sutherland.
