Description: Over the course of a year, movie follows Vancouver Pride Society president Ken Coolen to different international Pride events, including Poland, Hungary, Russia, Sri Lanka and others where there is nice opposition to pride parades. In North America, Pride is complicated by commercialization and a sense that the festivals are turning away from their political roots toward tourism, party promo and entertainment. Christie documents the methods larger, more mainstream Pride happenings have supported the global Pride movement and how human rights components are being added to more established events. In the Fresh York sequence, leaders organize an alternative Pride parade, the Drag March, set up to protest the corporatization of Fresh York Pride. A parade in São Paulo, the world's biggest Pride festival, itself contains a fully empty float, meant to symbolize all those lost to HIV and to anti-gay violence.

The Endurance: Shackleton's Legendary Antarctic Expedition Reviews:

I have read few ebooks about Shackleton's nice expedition to Antarctica. I first became aware of the storyline from a PBS documentary few years ago, and being amazed by the storyline of survival and endurance, sought out ebooks for more of the story. As a teacher I have used parts of this storyline as examples of leadership, enduring hardship, teamwork, loyalty, service, and hope. Being so familiar with this story, I wasn't sure what would be fresh in the film, but there was plenty there for me to play and still learn about. I found it interesting that the descendants of survivors consistently told that their relatives, as is common from many trying circumstances, rarely talked about the events. It was also nice to see the pictures I have seen over and over again place into a format where I should see them on a large screen. Even more nice is the surviving movie footage from the expedition. The preservation of this footage is wonderful, and in conjunction with the newly filmed footage of the unchanged antarctic landscape, gives you a better understanding of the wilderness these boys were up against. Shackelton is portrayed as the perfect leader that he was, but is not presented as an infallible genius. He was a boy who demonstrated nice qualities in hard circumstances, and he was a boy who understood the burden of his leadership and the importance for getting his boys home safely. If you've never heard of Shackleton, you are in the same boat (pun intended), as my wife, who was fully fresh to Shackleton's story. She loved the movie as well, and was fascinated by the story. So if you are well aware of the story, or fully fresh to it, I highly suggest this storyline of survival and endurance.


"The Endurance" is one of the most amazing, unforgettable films I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot of movies.) I want I should require everyone to see it. "The Endurance" makes a mockery of most of what passes for action-adventure. It leaves comic ebook films like 2008's "The Dark Knight," in its dust."The Endurance" says the storyline of Ernest Shackleton's alternately miraculous and disastrous Antarctic expedition of 1914. For the bulk of the film's runtime, I was on the edge of my seat, gasping, overwhelmed by the horror and magnitude of the nightmarish conditions Shackleton and his boys confronted. The men, stuck in Antarctica, watch their ship, their sole sure escape, crushed into a pile of toothpicks by heaving chunks of ice. A boy wakes in the middle of the night to realize that the ice under his tent has shifted; he plunges, in his sleeping bag, into Antarctic Ocean. Sled dogs go from being trusted allies and squad members to something starving boys debate eating. These conditions didn't last for an hour or a day or a month, but for over a year.Bad luck is followed by almost miraculous momentary deliverance. At one desperate point, the fate of his boys hanging on his ability to carry out an almost impossible task – walking non-stop for 36 hours across unmapped cliffs, mountains, and glaciers, after months of malnutrition and under-using the muscles in his legs – Shackleton is convinced that a supernatural companion accompanies him. Mary Crean O'Brien, daughter of Tom Crean, who also made this trek with Shackleton, insists that that ghostly companion had been sent by "the boy upstairs." One may scoff, but in this trek, Shackleton just missed a blizzard that, had he had to walk through it, would have certainly killed him. But what about all the terrible luck that damned Shackleton and his boys to their icy prison? This is a movie that has you asking the large questions. Why do boys do these crazy things? What does suffering mean, especially given how difficult some folks seek it out? Are these boys greater than the rest of us, or merely mad? Where are frontiers, and heroes like this today? "Endurance" gets you thinking about culture. The British Empire gets a terrible rap, but it did train its boys to be honorable, and to live up to a code of conduct. Shackleton and his boys were stoic, self-sacrificing, and learned to transcend class and ethnic differences. I had to wonder how a group of youths trained by our actual values of whining, victimization, selfishness, identity politics and deviance would have responded under a related catastrophe.The movie is pretty to look at. The filmmakers traveled to the Antarctic and complement Frank Hurley's, antique, black-and-white movie footage and still photographs with modern, color footage. The result is mesmerizing. The modern movie footage plunges you into the Antarctic; you will feel cold. You will contemplate turquoise shadows on pure white icebergs, ice-choked sea, and blizzards as aesthetic phenomena, as guardians of the last frontier, and as opponents who wish to stop the blood in your veins and suck your body few fathoms down.I have to confess that I found this movie difficult to watch. And I couldn't stop watching it. After it was done, I really required time to decompress. Moment after moment juggles human lives and fates. I'll never forget this film, though, and its demonstration of the power of the human spirit.


An inspiring storyline of the will to survive which takes us back to the "Heroic Age" of exploration. Ernest Shackleton's expedition to the Antarctic set off in 1914 on the eve of Globe fight 1. However, they became trapped in package ice not far from their destination, though not close enough. So began a 2-year ordeal in the most inhospitable conditions,a constant war for survival, before the redoubtable Shackleton got his boys to safety...without losing one life. Then, on top of that, the boys hurried back to support the fight effort. The documentaries mix footage taken by the original expedition photographer and fresh footage to present the picturesque yet deadly, inhospitable and unforgiving land, and say this superhuman tale of survival. Effectively shot and beautifully edited, and well narrated by Liam Neeson, you can almost feel the cold. At the end of it, no matter how much you already knew about the expedition, you still cannot trust this wonderful storyline is real.
