A wealth of mystery lies hidden within the 6 million cubic miles of ice that dominate the surface of Antarctica. It's a continent shrouded in speculation, misinformation and wartime intrigue. The fascinating documentary titled "The Real Secrets Hidden in Antarctica...Revealed" sets out to expose the juiciest of these potential cover-ups.
The film outlines the suspicious history of the continent, geographical inconsistencies, and unexplained anomalies discovered through satellite imagery. The evidence seems to suggest that the region was more tropical at one time, and could hold meaningful clues as to our ancient existence on this planet. The filmmakers defend this assertion by illustrating the discovery of man-made artifacts by early explorers, areas where vegetation is thought to have once thrived, and large quantities of exotic life buried miles underneath the frozen surface.
Much of the film's narrative revolves around the formidable presence of international military forces on the continent, including those of the United States, Britain, Russia, and even the Nazis during World War II. History shows us that the continent is of tremendous strategic value to military interests. Rumors persist that secret bunkers may have existed there in years past, and that they might have even sheltered Hitler in the aftermath of the war.
The film contends that beneath the innocuous guise of weather and penguin research, the United States might have taken advantage of the continent's vast uranium resources by constructing obscured nuclear testing and missile sites.
More mysteries lie ahead as the film details additional top secret efforts that are thought to have occurred in Antarctica, including the study and manipulation of weather patterns, the storage of mass amounts of food, and the construction of elaborate underground tunnel and transport systems.
The film will certainly appeal to conspiracy theory enthusiasts, but it is executed with great journalistic authority. It's a comprehensive portrait of the continent's rich environmental character, its many decades of geo-political importance, and the enigmatic qualities that attract both legitimate and nefarious entities.
"The Real Secrets Hidden in Antarctica...Revealed" is impressively adorned with many credible news clippings, stock clips and archived interviews which support its conspiratorial claims.
