directed by Werner Herzog, 2008 / US / 99’

What has led Werner Herzog to Antarctica? On his trip to the end of the world, the famed German director encounters a linguist/philosopher, an ex-banker who’s now a bus driver and an eternal traveler who likes to entertain the crowds by contorting her body into a travel bag. After his human encounters, he turns his gaze at the penguins. An existentialist documentary for melancholy travelers who have found piece on ice and the endless expanses of snow that surround them.
