This feature documentary introduces a dashing Manhattan filmmaker, Varick Frissell, who travels to the wilds of Newfoundland in the 1920s. Backed by Paramount Pictures, Frissell was setting out to make the early sound feature The Viking, an astonishing record of Newfoundland's perilous seal hunt. White Thunder tells this remarkable tale in detail, bringing us back to the undulating icy seas where Frissell would eventually meet his tragic fate.
