Summary
This film explores the life and loves of Roald Amundsen (1872-1928), the most successful polar explorer of all time. The film portrays him not as a lone white hero of legend, but as a person who shared with the Inuit and Inupiat of Arctic Canada and Alaska as well as the Chukchi of Siberia. He gained vital knowledge that enabled him to navigate the Northwest Passage, conquer the South Pole, navigate the Northeast Passage and be first confirmed to have reached the North Pole. ..Shot entirely on location in Antarctica, the High Arctic (Alaska, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut), Mexico, Scotland, England, Belgium and Norway, The Blinding Sea is a non-derivative film affirming the values of courage, dignity and sharing of knowledge in an intercultural setting. This is the first film by George Tombs, an artist-historian and former professor at Athabasca University. It is a historically rigorous account, drawing on rich story-telling by members of the Amundsen, Gerlache and Scott families, as well as on Inuit and Chukchi oral traditions
