STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Avon Theatre and the Alliance Francaise of Greenwich are teaming to present a free screening of "The Pursuit of Endurance."
The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at the theater, 272 Bedford St., Stamford.
There will be a post-film Q&A with Luc Hardy.
The film is about nine adventurers living an extraordinary story in the heart of the Antarctic. They come from very different backgrounds, but one thing brings them together -- a passion for adventure and testing the limits. Their goal: to follow in the footsteps of one of the greatest legends of the golden age of polar exploration, Ernest Shackleton.
In 1914, after the sinking of his ship, The Endurance, Shackleton saved his entire crew from a certain death. One hundred years later, the new expedition sets out to explore the sub-Antarctic islands of Elephant, South Georgia and the South Sandwich by boat, ski and pulka.
