North Pole Promise (2013)
27min · Documentary, Short, Drama · 1 April 2013
Narrator James Earl Jones delves into the secret legacy left behind when American explorers Admiral Robert E. Peary and Matthew Henson discovered the North Pole in 1909. Harvard Professor Dr. S. Allen Counter travels to remote Greenland to uncover the long-buried mystery. In one the northernmost villages in the world, he meets the explorers' 80-year old Eskimo sons, Kali Peary and Anaukaq Henson, and attempts to fulfill their dream of visiting the land of their fathers. Along the way, Counter also helps history honor Matthew Henson, who never received credit for the discovery of the North Pole because he was African American.
