Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 06/13/2008
"Few filmmakers make the end of days seem as hauntingly beautiful as Werner Herzog does..."
Film Comment - 05/01/2008
"In ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD we are offered a glimpse into a dynamic terrain, one whose landscapes are in environmental flux due to global warming..."
Rolling Stone - 06/26/2008
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Herzog is one of a kind. His new doc is an event you watch in awe as you marvel at its wonders."
Entertainment Weekly - 06/20/2008
"The stunning images aren't enough for Herzog....He wants us to see how these quirky researchers, in their lust to explore, are acting out a drive as primitive as nature: the need to break away from the world in order to find it." -- Grade: A
Los Angeles Times - 06/27/2008
"The images captured by Herzog and cinematographer Peter Zeitlinger are dazzling all on their own, finding the disorienting psychedelia that is nature at its weirdest."
Total Film - 08/13/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "Herzog imparts an infectious awe at nature's wild wonder."

Product Description:

In the most hostile, barren, alien environment on the planet - you meet the most interesting people.

Welcome to Antarctica - like you've never experienced it. You've seen the extraordinary marine life, the retreating glaciers and, of course, the penguins, but leave it to award-winning, iconoclastic filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn) to be the first to explore the South Pole's most fascinating inhabitants...humans. In this one-of-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.
