Plot

In 1931, a documentary filmmaker hears of J.C. Sullivan who may know the fate of the Hollandia, a Norwegian ship that sailed to Antarctica in 1905 and disappeared. J.C. Sullivan was the carpenter on that ill-fated voyage and is the last known surviving crewmember of the Hollandia. The filmmaker interviews Sullivan who is also able to supply him with canisters of old film footage which back up the unbelievable accounts that Sullivan describes.

The film, made in 1993, is presented as a 1931 documentary of a series of events that occurred in 1905. The footage of the fictional expedition is from other polar expeditions of the time. These clips are interspersed with the interview of J.C. Sullivan.

Cast

  • Joseph O'Conor as J.C. Sullivan
  • Roy Ward as the Interviewer/filmmaker
  • Reception

    The New York Times' Janet Maslin praised the "honest power of the film's archival scenes" while condemning its narrative as slow-paced, portentous, and poorly written.
