The documentary No Horizon Anymore is to premiere at the Jaxon Film Fest. Filmed by documentarian Keith Reimink it captures the struggles of living at the Antarctica, the literal end of the earth, a place fewer than 2,000 people have ever spent a winter. It will be but one of the documentaries which will screen at the Carnegie Branch Library auditorium, 244 W. Michigan Ave., Jackson, MI, September 29th.
Says film festival director David W. King, “We have been excited by the quality of the films we have received this first year of our film festival. But we are particularly excited to be able to premiere this documentary. Few people have ever been to the South Pole, let alone been able to capture what living conditions are like there for a full year. Filmmaker Keith Reimink has done that. And we have been given the privilege of being the first to share this documentary with the world.”
To present his film, Keith Reimink will be appear at the Carnegie Branch Library afterwards for a Q & A, and a possible autograph signing. Meet Keith Reimink in person
About No Horizon Anymore:
‘No Horizon Anymore’ offers unique glimpse into life at the South Pole
Fewer than 2,000 people have spent a winter at the South Pole, where night lasts months and every direction is north. When filmmaker Keith Reimink signed a contract to spend a year cooking at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station and join this exclusive club, he had no idea what to expect. How would the experience change him? Reimink decided to investigate with his camera. His film, “No Horizon Anymore,” offers a singular glimpse at a continent steeped in madness and mystery — and the people who are drawn to it.
“Everyone loves ‘March of the Penguins’ and ‘Frozen Planet’ because they are unique and beautiful,” Reimink said. “But there is another side to Antarctica — a year-round rotating staff of people from all ages and walks of life that come to Antarctica and the Pole because it is a lifestyle. There’s the buzz of a South Pole summer, when the research facility teems with activity and people. There’s the year-round research into fundamental questions about our planet and universe. There’s the awe-inspiring sight of the Antarctic sunrise and sunset, each of which occur only once a year.”
The South Pole is beautiful, it is pristine. Making its debut at the Jaxon Film Festival in Jackson, Michigan, Reimink’s film is a must see for adventurers and polar enthusiasts alike.
