The international expedition “Hielo Patagnonia 95” carries out an important glacial speleology venture. The largest endoglacial cave in the world is discovered in Patagonia, Argentina. Over 1000 metres of tunnels in the ice represent a new and extraordinary “landscape”. This also marks a new step in the knowledge of the internal structure of glaciers.
Milan’s Alessandro Gatti started following his father’s footsteps as a young man by making films and documentaries in various parts of the world. He specialises in making films that require difficult shots. His work includes Tepui 93, Vortice Blu, Il mondo sommerso dello Yucatan, Quota 8000, I pirati moderni, Rete4 Sai Xchè and Buffin 88.
