White Thunder

2000, Movie, NR, 50 mins

Documentarian Victoria King's majestic non-fiction film that's simultaneously a biography of filmmaker Varick Frissell and a tribute to the Canadian seal-hunters he immortalized.

In 1931, a ship called the Viking exploded in Newfoundland; Frissell, who had chartered it for re-shoots on his first fiction film, was one of its victims. A child of privilege, the Harvard graduate first visited the North American wilderness in the 1920s and subsequently distinguished himself as a member of Dr. Wilfrid Grenfell's medical crusade. Frissell developed a kinship with the impoverished workers he treated and felt more at home with them than in his father's New York mansion....
