Encounters at the End of the World

Award-winning iconoclastic filmmaker Werner Herzog offers his unique perspective on the South Pole in this film profiling the Antarctic community of McMurdo Station. Revealing the mysterious continent's seldom seen wonders and introducing it's most fascinating creatures...humans. In this one-of-a-kind documentary, Herzog turns his camera on a group of remarkable individuals, "professional dreamers" who work, play and struggle to survive in a harsh landscape of mesmerizing, otherworldly beauty - perhaps the last frontier on earth. Disc 2 features a not-to-be-missed 'Jonathan Demme interviews Werner Herzog.'
