Special Screening: Encounters at the End of the World

More events scheduled this week for one of our favorite modern filmakers, Werner Herzog. See list of events on the Cinema Studies Website HERE for more info.

There is a hidden society at the end of the world. One thousand men and women live together under unbelievably close quarters in Antarctica, risking their lives and sanity in search of cutting-edge science.
Now, for the first time, an outsider has been admitted. In his first documentary since GRIZZLY MAN, Werner Herzog, accompanied only by his camerman, traveled to Antarctica, with rare access to the raw beauty and raw humanity of the ultimate Down Under.
ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD, Herzog’s latest meditation on nature, explores this land of Fire, Ice and corrosive Solitude. Special Screening today at the UPENN International House, 3701 Chestnut St. Philadelphia, PA. 7pm *posted by Jaguarman
