Must-See Movies for January
Check these out – our list of recommended movies to inspire your inner wanderer!
Antarctica: A Year on Ice (2013) – “A visually stunning journey to the end of the world with the hardy and devoted people who live there year-round. The research stations scattered throughout the continent host a close-knit international population of scientists, technicians and craftsmen. Isolated from the rest of the world, enduring months of unending darkness followed by periods when the sun never sets, Antarctic residents experience firsthand the beauty and brutality of the most severe environment on Earth” –SPL.
Samsara (2011) – “Filmed over nearly five years in twenty-five countries on five continents, and shot on 75mm film, Samsara transports you to the varied worlds of sacred grounds and natural wonders” –IMDb.
Vivan Las Antipodas (2012) – “What would be the shortest route between Entre Rios in Argentina and the Chinese metropolis Shanghai? Simply a straight line through the center of the earth, since the two places are antipodes: They are located diametrically opposite each other on the Earth's surface. During his visits to four such antipodal pairs, the award-winning documentary filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky captured images that turn our view of the world upside down” –SPL.
The Trip to Italy (2014) – “Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are on an all-expenses-paid trip for the Observer. Their tough assignment is to drive through beautiful Italian country, eat lavishly, and stay in exquisite small hotels” –SPL. Beautifully captures the Italian countryside and may even inspire you to take a trip there yourself!
