Encounters at the End of the World 
Dir. Werner Herzog 
Thursday December 10, 7:30 PM 

A study of the sublime and the absurd at the southernmost point of the planet, Encounters at the End of the World is Werner Herzog's most recent documentary, commissioned by the National Science Foundation. From the outset, Herzog proclaims that it is "not a film about fluffy penguins"; instead the film examines the psychology of the scientists and technicians who have chosen to live and work in this formidable landscape.
