A thrilling journey to the world's most perilous environment, Antarctic Edge: 70° South joins a team of world-class scientists as they explore the fastest warming place on earth: the West Antarctic Peninsula.

Filmed in one of the most perilous environments on the planet, Antarctic Edge brings to us the stunning landscapes and seascapes of Earth's southern polar region, revealing the harsh conditions and huge challenges that scientists endure for months at a time. While navigating through 60-foot waves and dangerous icebergs, the film follows the team as they make land on rugged, inhospitable Charcot Island to study the rapidly declining Adelie Penguin. For the scientists, these birds are the greatest indicator of climate change and a harbinger of what is to come.

2015 Theatrical Release

"There aren't many uncharted areas left on the globe, but 'Antarctic Edge: 70 South' takes viewers to a spot where surveying is so scarce that the destinations may diverge from their locations on a map. Exploring that terrain could mean getting caught in ice for a month. 'Antarctic Edge' illustrates its points effectively, providing vivid evidence of how shrinking ice at the South Pole affects climates across the globe.” - The New York Times

“Like an IMAX film minus the giant screen, 'Antarctic Edge: 70 South' compellingly follows oceanographic scientists as they grapple with the escalating effects of climate change. Stirringly shot, intimately and vividly documented, it is a moving portrait of individuals who devote their lives to understanding the environmental shifts that all too soon might manifest themselves on our own altered shorelines.” - The Los Angeles Times

“Beautifully filmed... Director Dena Seidel and her crew have made one of the most informative films shot on location in the Polar Regions since Robert Flaherty's groundbreaking Eskimo epic Nanook of the North. What most distinguishes the film is its often exquisite, eye popping cinematography of the most remote, inaccessible places on Earth, where it takes longer to travel to than it does to reach the moon. The breathtaking images of cavorting elephant seals, penguins pecking at camera lenses, humpbacks riding the waves, and, last but not least, the empty polar scenery, make the strongest case for protecting these species, waters, air and land imperiled by a climate change.” - Earth Island Journal
