There’s a chill in the air at BFI Southbank this summer, and I’m not just talking about the Russian invasion. The Great White Silence (1924), Herbert Ponting’s haunting film about RF Scott’s tragic expedition to the South Pole is on nationwide release from 20 May, so it’s getting an extended run at BFI Southbank.
The film’s devastating imagery and its innovative, mournful score by Simon Fisher Turner definitely deserve the big-screen treatment, so enter our competition and you could win a pair of tickets to any BFI Southbank screening of The Great White Silence. Just answer this simple question:
- What was the name of the Norwegian explorer who beat Scott and his crew to the South Pole?
