Into the ColdTwo filmmakers head to the frigid North Pole in documentary Into the Cold.

Fewer than 150 people have visited the North Pole on foot — ever. Award-winning photographer Sebastian Copeland and expedition guide Keith Heger filmed their 400-mile trek to the top of the world during two months in 2009, facing harsh temperatures that fell to -50 degrees. Their trip retraced and commemorated the centennial of Robert E. Peary’s successful expedition in April 1909.

During the journey showcased in Into the Cold, Copeland and Heger each pulled a 200-pound sled while wearing cross country skis over uneven terrain and ice boulders. Copeland survived a fall through the ice and the men dealt with life-threatening food shortages.

With Global Warming, this same trek will no longer be possible in the next 10 or 20 years as temperatures rise, changing the landscape and endangering the animal species in the Arctic Circle, according to Copeland.

The DVD contains the book presentation Antarctica: The Global Warning.

Into the Cold garnered awards at the Indie Spirit Film Festival, Los Angeles Reel Film Festival and was an Official Selection at the Environmental Film Festival, Arclight Film Festival and Victoria Film Festival. The movie premiered at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.
