 SYNOPSIS

 In 1845 Sir John Franklin led 128 men on two ships in search for the Northwest Passage. Caught in ice in their first year, all men eventually perished, with the story of the doomed expedition living on, attracting explorers seeking the remains. Lost for over 165 years, the HMS Erebus was finally discovered in September, 2014 by Parks Canada archeologists. Now they dive under 3 metres of ice to breathe new life into the history of the ships and their crew. Observing the story from the perspective of both the lost sailors and the archaeologists at the forefront of the discovery, Beyond The Horizon reflects on a unique place where the progress of time can lose all meaning.

ABOUT THE FILM

Beyond The Horizon was shot on location above the HMS Erebus, in Nunavut, Canada, in April of 2015.  Alongside an operation conducted by the Royal Canadian Navy Arctic Operations and Joint Task Force North, Parks Canada underwater archaeologists set up camp on the frozen ice for just over one week. Digging through 3 metres of ice, they created a hole to visit the ship in ideal conditions: no wave flow, and clear visibility.  Director Ryan J. Noth was on site for 3 nights, conducting interviews and filming the diving and camp life in action with cinematographer Stephen Chung. With this film he presents the lost story of the ship, and its new caretakers’ hopes for the story’s future.
