In 1986, four Australian Arctic explorers travelled to an Arctic Hell and back in sea kayaks. This is their story of storms, suffering and survival – and finally triumph. Here is the strength of the human spirit despite conflict, hunger and iceberg collapse during violent winter hurricanes blowing 260kph. Come and see the pristine wilderness of East Greenland, before it began to melt, shedding trillions of tonnes of ice to become the Earth’s greatest contributor to sea level rise. Introduced by Professor Peter Harrison, Southern Cross University. Film presented by the expedition leader. Q&A after the film. This is a fundraising event for the Oceanic Research Institute, Australia's first international oceanic and climate expedition research organisation. Every online booking goes into the draw to win a signed copy of the highly acclaimed official expedition book ‘Savage Coast’ (worth $40)
