With a unique blend of dramatic action and behind-the-scenes documentary footage, filmmaker John Walker shares the multi-layered story of British explorer Sir John Franklin and his crew of 128 men, who perished in the Arctic ice during an ill-fated attempt to discover the Northwest Passage, and John Rae, the Scottish doctor who in 1851, discovered their dismal fate. Rae's dark report, which described the crew’s madness and cannibalism, did not sit well with Sir John's widow, Lady Franklin, nor with many others in British society, including Charles Dickens. They waged a bitter public campaign to discredit Rae's version of events and mark an entire nation of northern Inuit with the label of murderous cannibals. A stunning face-to-face meeting between the great-great grandson of Charles Dickens and Tagak Curley, an honoured Inuit statesman who challenges the fraudulent history, vaults the story from the past into the present and we are witness to history in the making.

    In light of the discovery of HMS Erebus, this film and other factual documentaries are an important part of correcting the erroneous 'history' that has been portrayed for over 150 years. We need to reconcile the facts with the 'history' and offer sincere apologies to the Inuit peoples and Dr. John Rae for the shabby treatment they have received. My only disappointment with this film was the inability to read/decipher the credits at the end. Hats off to the NFB and producers.

    Wow, this film was very good! I had never heard about this story before and it was great to hear about it in such a way. Having reenactments as well as present-day footage of the people filming gives much more of an emotional impact. The scene at the end in the conference room was very heartwarming.
