Werner Herzog ('Grizzly Man', 'Rescue Dawn') confirms his standing as poet laureate of men in extreme situations with ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD. In this visually stunning exploration, Herzog travels to the Antarctic community of McMurdo Station, headquarters of the National Science Foundation and home to eleven hundred people during the austral summer (Oct-Feb). Over the course of his journey, Herzog examines human nature and Mother Nature, juxtaposing breathtaking locations with the profound, surreal, and sometimes absurd experiences of the marine biologists, physicists, plumbers, and truck drivers who choose to form a society as far away from society as one can get.

"I wanted to go to Antarctica after seeing underwater pictures of an otherwordly environment, that were taken by a friend of mine, an expert diver, who captured a frozen world unlike anything I had ever seen before. I accompanied a group of scientists and researchers headed for McMurdo Station in the massive Ross Sea.

I did not expect pristine landscapes and men living in blissful harmony with fluffy penguins, but I was still surprised to find McMurdo looking like and ugly mining town filled with caterpillars and noisy construction sites.

But McMurdo is filled with professional dreamers and wonderful stories"
