7:45 NORTH WEST PASSAGE - ON
FRANKLIN'S TRAIL (Ireland) Directed and produced by John Murray
Sailing a small boat through
the Northwest Passage is one of the truly great challenges left on earth. The
film follows an Irish crew of eight men as they cross the Atlantic and force a
passage through to the Pacific on a three month adventure. They travel through a
spectacular Arctic world of ice, mountains and frozen wastes, a world that had
mysteriously swallowed up the expedition of John Franklin 150 years earlier.
