The Best and the Worst Journey in the World: Sarah Airriess

From Nine To Noon, 10:07 am on 29 April 2020

Oscar-winning Disney animator Sarah Airriess speaks with Kathryn Ryan about her new project, a series of graphic novels re-telling the story of the earliest explorers to the South Pole. Based on Captain Scott's team-mate Apsley Cherry-Garrard's memoir of their ill-fated 1912 expedition The Worst Journey in the World, Sarah's adaptation is breathing new life and love into it. You can keep abreast of the project and donate here and download sample chapters for free. Sarah left Hollywood behind for this passion project, but she had made her mark. Frozen, Winnie the Pooh, Wreck-It Ralph, the Academy Award winning Paperman, plus the much loved Simon's Cat are all on Sarah's CV.
