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. Retracing the events that led to the mapping of north-eastern Canada The Last Explorer uncovers what the history books left out.
