About the Film
There is a hidden society at the end of the world. One thousand men and women live together under unbelievably close quarters, risking their lives and sanity in search of cutting-edge science. Now, for the first time, an outsider has been admitted. In his first film adventure since Rescue Dawn and Grizzly Man, Werner Herzog travels into the cast expanses of Antarctica – a land of fire and ice nearly twice the size of Australia. Using what are, at times, life endangering filming techniques, Herzog discovers a previously unseen world, above and below the icecap, that is teeming with awe-inspiring and seemingly alien life. Delivering scenes reminiscent of the BBC’s Planet Earth series, the Oscar® nominated Encounters at the End of the World is a truly epic exploration of our planet’s last great frontier.
