Aero Theatre presents a documentary double feature of the following films, plus a discussion between films with director Werner Herzog:
INTO THE INFERNO:
In this spectacular documentary, acclaimed director Werner Herzog travels with Clive Oppenheimer, one of the world’s leading volcanologists, to hot spots in the South Pacific, Ethiopia, Iceland and North Korea. Though nature at its most fiery and violent gets plenty of screen time, Herzog is equally interested in human nature, as scientists and indigenous people deal with the unpredictability of life in the midst of active volcanos.
ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD:
Director Werner Herzog and cinematographer Peter Zeitlinger traveled to Antarctica’s McMurdo Research Station to profile not just the region’s icy vistas and endangered species but also the scientists and support personnel whose work has brought them to the end of the world. Herzog dedicated this Oscar-nominated documentary to critic Roger Ebert, who rightly called the film “a poem of oddness and beauty.”
