Synopsis

As you might have guessed from the title, this isn't your average nature documentary. When legendary director Werner Herzog journeys to Antarctica, the people he meets there are just as fascinating as the wildlife. He stays at the McMurdo science station, where over a thousand researchers and scientists live, not in igloos, but in climate-controlled housing - they even have their own bowling alley and radio station. Herzog's distinctive voiceover provides the perfect guide to this weird and wonderful end of the world.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
