Update!
Check out this cool article about Mawson's trek by David Roberts in the January 2013 National Geographic ('Into the Unknown'). Roberts just finished a book on the trek called 'Alone on the Ice'. Glad Mawson's story is being told in the US! http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/201...

The film is based on Douglas Mawson's incredible 1912 solo trek in Antarctica. An amazing story of how, after losing his supplies and two friends to the ice, poetry and persistence kept a starving and exhausted man walking 100 miles across the harshest place on Earth.

Directed by Louie Fisher who also did sound, camera, special effects, editing, and co-wrote the script.

Will Chiles wrote and performed the music, produced and co-wrote the script.
("Winter Mountain" written and performed by Inge Chiles.)

We made this film over eight months in rural Wisconsin (Pepin County) for $80.
