BACK ON DVD! FEATURING AN INTRODUCTION FROM THE FILMMAKER, COMMENTARY BY DIRECTOR PHILIP KAUFMAN, AND MORE! Based on James Houston's true story of an Arctic adventure, THE WHITE DAWN relates the story of three sailors who are separated from their ship during an Arctic hunt for polar bear and walrus. Eskimos who live on Baffin Island, just south of the North Pole, save their lives, but one angry sailor brings fear and violence to all. Magnificent location footage and realistic hunting scenes bring a striking flavor to the intense and passionate conflict.
