Antarctica is a Vangelis soundtrack to the 1983 Japanese film Antarctica ("Nankyoku Monogatari") by Koreyoshi Kurahara. For years, the soundtrack album was only available in Japan, appearing in other countries as a rare and expensive import, when in 1988 Polydor finally decided to release the album worldwide.

CD Covers

There are two different CD covers, one predominantly white and the other depicting a frame from the film with the dogs. In each CD, the unused cover serves as the back of the booklet.
