ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD (PG)
In his first documentary since Grizzly Man, Werner Herzog, accompanied only by his cameraman, traveled to Antarctica, to speak with the one thousand men and women who risk their lives and sanity in search of cutting edge science, and to discover the raw beauty of the ultimate Down Under.
“Only Herzog would quiz a penguin specialist about penguin prostitution, and whether there are gay or insane penguins!”
