Shackleton Centenary Expedition

Shackleton + Youtube + Central Park =


Today's youtube video: my brother came across this this morning and forwarded it onto me. During the 2005 blizzard in New York, a handful of filmakers created a modern mockumentary sequel to Sir Ernest Shackleton's quest for the Pole: In deepest coldest Central Park 'Lord Bramwell Shackleton' attempts to reach the Pole.

It's interesting that Central Park crops again, after an earlier article I wrote regarding an performance art installation by the artist Pierre Huyghe about Antarctica about a month ago.

Clicking here will take you through to our youtube favourites site. Clicking on the video entitled Shackleton: Quest for the Pole' will take you straight to 'Lord Bramwell Shackleton' in Central Park - enjoy!
