Editorial Reviews

Into the Cold: A Journey of the Soul is an award-winning feature-length documentary that follows two men's dramatic expedition to the North Pole widely considered the toughest on Earth. As magnificent as it is inhospitable, this is an environment that is rapidly vanishing. The film follows noted environmental advocate, photographer, and polar explorer Sebastian Copeland through his intensive training before embarking on the two-month, 400+ mile trip on foot across the frozen ice cap with his partner Keith Heger. From personal reflections to last minute preparations, the story shifts when the two men are dropped onto the ice, fiaced with temperatures in excess of -50F, alone for millions of square miles, and armed with only their courage and determination. "Into the Cold takes you deep into the stark reality of an expedition to this vanishing place in a way rarely seen on film. Pay attention, this is an important film!" -- Ridley Scott (Director, Blade Runner, Gladiator)

Meanwhile, “Into the Cold” is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

And likely, no Hollywood actors are going to go to the real place to get the job done.

Into the Cold is a compelling documentary about a very important contemporary subject.

Into The Cold is a truly amazing film with a powerful message. The images of the North Pole are both stunning and eye-opening (and in HD!) I highly recommend this film to anyone who is passionate about the environment and the outdoors, and I hope that everyone who watches it will share it with their friends and family. It is virtually impossible to watch this film and not feel inspired on a number of levels.

Into the Cold is a compelling documentary about a very important contemporary subject.
Sebastian Copeland and Keith Heger set off an expedition to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of Perry and Henson's treck to the North Pole and in the process teach us about the importance of polar ice caps.
The images are stunning and the message is unmistakably clear; The polar ice caps are melting at an alarming rate and if we don't change the way we pollute our environments, our future generations are going to have a really tough time.
The photography makes a lasting impression, at times you actually feel that you are right there with them in the most inhospitable place on earth.
Mr. Copeland should be applauded for caring so much about the world that he is willing to risk his life to bring this message to the everyone.
I encourage everybody to see this film. It is visually amazing and covers a desperately important subject-matter.

I caught this at the Arclight doc festival in LA and it was, for me, the pick of the festival. The photography alone is stunningly beautiful, but I think the reason it struck such a chord with me was the way that you become sucked into the story of Sebastian and Keith struggling through incredible difficulty, including the very real possibility of death, as they trek on foot to the North Pole. You're almost there with them, except you're incredibly thankful you're not in reality as it is no joke what they are going through. The melting ice at the pole is the message from Sebastian, but regardless of your feelings about climate change, this is a must see doc for anyone interested in arctic exploration and human will to survive and conquer. Highly Recommended.

Into the Cold is bone-chilling. The real life brutal and dramatic adventure of two men trekking on foot for 400 freezing miles over the course of two months while dragging 200 lb sleds is a tale (and film) even Hollywood could not make up, let alone capture in high def. The explorers (Sebastian Copeland and Keith Heger) face and document challenges that only few men would even considered facing. Frostbite. Low food availability. -50 degrees and a melting ice terrain that is nothing short of incredibly dangerous. THAT is the story line.

As for the filming, no movie set could ever do this justice. And likely, no Hollywood actors are going to go to the real place to get the job done. These men are in THE real place on THE very top of our planet capturing its incredible glory. It's stunning and beautiful and courageous, and it takes you somewhere you will never go....to The North Pole.

Envigorating to watch. Visually beautiful! Impossibly daring. Into the Cold is a story of unbelievable determination against incredible odds. And, if you have a big screen, all the better, because Into the Cold is even bigger than that.

One thing to note... I highly suggest you bring your coat, because Sebastian and Keith are taking you INTO THE COLD.

Absolutley recommended!

“Into the Cold: A Journey of the Soul” (2010 release; 87 min.) retells the preparation for, and then the actual attempt, to recreate the polar expedition of Admiral Keary and his team from 1909 exactly 100 years later. It basically involved a 6 week trek on foot, covering over 300 miles, towards the north pole. As the documentary opens, we are introduced to Sebastian Copeland, the writer-director-photographer-editor and all-around “star” of this movie. We learn a bit of his background and then things start to get serious with the final preparations of Sebastian’s and Keith’s trek, which Sebastian calls “the Mount Everest of polar expeditions”, but as the DVD jacket cleverly points out: “In the last century, fewer than 150 people have made it to the North Pole on foot. By comparison, 77 people summited Mt. Everest on May 22, 2008 alone”, so it’s pretty clear which of the two is hardest. To tell you more would spoil your viewing experience, you’ll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: first, the initial 40 min. or so of the documentary are devoted to background stories and preparations for the expedition. So when we finally do get to the actual expedition, I was more than ready for it. I’m happy to say it is very much worth it, and then some. We see Sebastian and Keith dealing with rubble fields, pressure ridges, fatigue, and the cold. Ah, yes, the cold! Temperatures exceed minus 50F at times, just unreal. Second, the footage from the North Pole is nothing short of stunning. And the beauty is that we get to see it in the comfort and warmth of our living room. Third, despite all the fluff about “searching for myself” or “a soul’s journey”, Copeland has a clear agenda for doing this, and the movie is basically a plea for a renewable and sustainable world.
