Antarctica: The Human Endeavour

Top of page

Some discuss climate change, others study it. Jean Lemire and the crew of the Sedna IV have dared to experience it personally. For 430 days, they voluntarily become adventurers in search of the lost climate. They are confronted with the tragic destiny of wildlife profoundly disrupted by the effects of global warming on their ecosystem; imminent catastrophe threatening Sedna IV and its occupants; wonderment at nature, both splendid and infinitely vulnerable; and terrible powerlessness in the face of dire circumstances, distance and time.

This series is a collection of revelations that reach deep within and inevitably worry, spur to action, move and inform. The human endeavour is seen through the eyes of those who dare to look: 13 people who surrender to vulnerability and fear, only to emerge forever in awe of the unparalleled beauty of nature.

Torn between emerging conflicts and necessary tolerance, crew members must remain committed to the mission and their own survival. Their incredible adventure is recorded through stunning images and touching testimonies. It is a story of courage that elicits admiration and concern. But mostly, it is an extraordinary journey that paves the way for a better understanding of life.
