The Last Explorer

The Last Explorer retraces the events that led to the mapping of north-eastern Canada and uncovers the revealing lost diaries, insinuations of forbidden love, and the allegations of revenge that the history books left out.

 

The Last Explorer is a historical docu-drama that depicts the story of Cree explorer, George Elson who guided two separate cartography expeditions through the uncharted Labrador wilderness: one in 1903 with American explorer Leonidas Hubbard, which ended in disaster, and another in 1905, with Hubbard’s widow Mina, which ended in glory.

While this story of adversity, adventure and death has been told many times, it has never been told from the perspective of Elson, who many historians, and Cree storytellers now believe to be the hero of the expedition – the true leader, Mina’s saviour and perhaps, even her dearest lover.
