SYNOPSIS

'Encounters at the End of the World' … is an invocation of all that is wonderful on the planet, an articulation of my amazement and wonder at the Antarctic landscape, a celebration of the continent.

Encounters at the End of the World is a glorious celebration of Antarctica and the people who work there. Herzog travels to the McMurdo Research Station, where he visits the scientists, joining them as they travel across the wilderness and into the icy water below. They study the animals that inhabit the landscape with the director's usual unusualness – foregoing the typical reverent treatment of the creatures, instead showing both their beauty and their potential for madness. This documentary is a singular, riveting look at the remote Antarctic world and the people drawn to its mysteries.
