Encounters at the End of the World

Werner Herzog makes his own very particular exploration of the South Pole, which has lured scientists, adventurers and eccentrics like a magnet. He travels to the Antarctic community of McMurdo Station, on Ross Island, headquarters for the National Science Foundation and home to 1,100 people during the austral summer (4 months without a single night!). Beyond the settlement, he ventures through a science-fiction landscape, from the under-ice depths of the Ross Sea, to the brink of the Mount Erebus volcano. During Herzog's journey, nature in the wild shares equal time with human nature. McMurdo is a gathering place for people who want to step off the map or, in the words of one resident, "full-time travellers and part-time workers - professional dreamers."
