Free Documentary Film Screening: Ernest Shackleton and the Endurance

July 19 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Free

The Endurance Expedition was a British mission to cross the Antarctic on foot. Launched in 1914, the expedition became one of the most famous survival stories of all time after the expedition’s ship, Endurance, became stranded and then sank during the voyage to the Antarctic.

The Endurance’s crew became stranded on the remote Elephant Island and were only rescued 4 months later in 1916 after expedition leader Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) left to seek help. The miraculous survival of the Endurance crew earned Shackleton worldwide fame though his goal to cross the Antarctic on foot was never achieved.

The location of the sunken ship Endurance was lost for 107 years until being rediscovered on March 5, 2022.

Please register.  The film screening will take place at the Ridgefield Library on Tuesday, July 19th at 7:00pm.
