The Forbidden Quest

Peter Delpeut / NL, 1993 / 75 min.

Filmmaker Peter Delpeut dove into the Filmmuseum’s collection and merged archival footage from the early 20th century with a self-penned screenplay about the sole survivor of an expedition to the South Pole.

The result is a compelling adventure film, in which historical silent film footage of the journey to the South Pole plays a dramatic role in a magical story about murder, cannibalism and mystical salvation.
