Last year, adventurers Alastair Humphreys and Leon McCarron set off on a journey to cross the Empty Quarter, a massive desert in Arabia that stretches throughout parts of Saudi Arabia, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. It was a 1000-mile (1609 km) journey on foot into one of the most remote places on our planet as they followed in the footsteps of Wilfred Thesiger, a British explorer who famously traveled through the desert on his best known expeditions.
This fall, a documentary about Alastair and Leon’s journey will be released. That film is entitled Into The Empty Quarter and it will give us, the viewers, an opportunity to witness their adventure first hand while catching a glimpse of the amazing desert that enthralled them and Thesiger. The trailer for that film can be found below and based on what is shown here, it looks like a movie we won’t want to miss.
