Question: Can you please tell me if this is set in the Arctic or Antarctic, as the aurora borealis is better known as the Northern Lights and can only be seen there.

Answer: The film is set in the Antarctic, the South Pole. The aurora borealis is more commonly observed in high northern latitudes where there is more land mass with people populating it, but can be seen at either the north or south poles.

Factual error: In several scenes, characters drink 'Scotch Whiskey' from a bottle with a label that is obviously something the props department created. That's how it's spelled on the label, 'Scotch Whiskey'. The problem is, if it's Scotch, it's spelled 'WHISKY' (without the 'e').
