Fans of Locktopia Houston’s Endurance escape room might want to check out a documentary on the real-life 1914 Ernest Shackleton led Trans-Antarctic expedition through the actions of Captain Frank Worsley.

ZDF, a German public-service television broadcaster, produced the documentary The Endurance: A Legendary Story Of Survival – Shackleton’s Captain which claims to be the “First retelling of fabled 1914 expedition through hero’s perspective.”

Here is the film’s summary:

“In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew set off on the Endurance for Antarctica with the goal of crossing the continent. Yet even before reaching the coast, the ship became frozen in pack ice and was crushed. The fate of the crew seemed sealed – were it not for the exceptional seamanship and navigational talents of Captain Frank Worsley. This feature-length docudrama recounts for the first time ever the true story of Shackleton’s doomed expedition from the perspective of his remarkable captain.”

Starring in the renactments as Captain Worsley is actor Craig Parker who played Haldir in the “The Lord of the Ring” movies “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “The Two Towers.”
