    • Synopsis
    • A Uruguayan navy vessel crosses the South Atlantic, heading for Antarctica. In this stormy ocean, often
      strewn with icebergs, the journey is long and full of danger. The sailors work very hard to bring a military
      base its provisions. Having arrived, it is the icy continent that reigns, with its unconquerable climate and sense of solitude and isolation. In these vast landscapes, the men slowly disappear. Only the voice of an Orthodox liturgy reminds us of their presence. Frozen man aims at figuring out what remains when
      there is nothing left and what do we become once we see nature is not an enemy, but what contains us. There is an element of oppression; we cannot escape from what contains and contemplates us, and the only trace of humanity left is little gestures. This frozen man becomes his own movements and the camera keeps him company, trying to understand his task. What remains of humanity at the end of the world is to be found there.
