Lessons of Darkness / Fata Morgana

In the aftermath of the Gulf War, retreating Iraqi soldiers left the oil fields of Kuwait a raging inferno. True to form as perhaps the world's most death-defying filmmaker, Werner Herzog and a small camera crew arrived on the scene to film the carnage. Punctuated by soaring music and Herzog's own commentary, "Lessons of Darkness" is a powerful, breathtaking and strangely beautiful portrait of a world on fire. "Fata Morgana" (1969, 76 mins) - In one of the strangest and most mesmerizing films ever made, world-renowned director Werner Herzog brings his cameras to the Sahara desert in order to film mirages.
