ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD
2007, Discovery Films, 99 min, USA, Dir: Werner Herzog

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.”
