Encounters at the End of the World

Diver under the Antarctic Ice

Diver under the Antarctic Ice

Paul and I watched this fantastic documentary film last night. I expected a ho-hum, “good-for-you” learning experience. Not so with Werner Herzog! It is a fascinating exploration of the strange creatures, including the humans, who live in this world of ice and extreme solitude.

Among the highlights: divers under the ice, scientists scaling the crater of a volcano into a magma lake, a deranged penguin running into the endless void.

Haunting, eerie, and mind-blowing.
