Voyage to the edge of the world


Voyage to the Edge of the World (French: Voyage au bout du monde) is a 1976 French nature documentary film directed by Jacques-Yves Cousteau, his son Philippe Cousteau and Marshall Flaum. The film follows a four months expedition through Antarctica undertaken between the end of 1972 and the beginning of 1973. It was Cousteau's third and last full-length film, following The Silent World (1956) and World Without Sun (1964). As a difference with those two earlier Cousteau films, both mainly narrated by Jacques-Yves Cousteau himself, on this film Jacques-Yves' voice-over alternates with co-director Philippe Cousteau's voice.

Plot

Voyage to the Edge of the World movie scenes

In December 1972 The Cousteau Society sets out on a four-months expedition through Antarctica. The expedition is supported by Monaco's Oceanographic Museum and the La Rochelle Natural History Museum, the latter represented on board by Raymond Duguy (1927 - 2012), its director at the time.

Divers and scientists of the expedition observe the fauna and the ice formations of the frozen continent. Footage is filmed on board the Calypso but also on land (for example at Deception Island), underwater, over sea ice or from the air, by means of a hot air balloon and a helicopter. Voyage to the Edge of the World was the first film to show underwater footage taken from the submerged inside of glaciers or icebergs. It also was the first film to show high depth footage in Antarctic waters (thanks to the diving saucer SP-350 Denise).

Paleontologist Michel Laval, Calypso's Chief Mate, accidentally died on Deception Island, 29 December 1972, when he was struck by the tail propeller of the helicopter of the expedition.
