by | March 13, 2008 | Comments

Throughout his career, Werner Herzog has shown a fascination with protagonists in impossible situations. For his latest film, he took his cameras to what might be the most impossible place on Earth.

Variety reports that Herzog’s Encounters at the End of the World, the director’s first documentary since 2005’s Grizzly Man, has been given distribution by ThinkFilm and Image Entertainment in association with Discovery Films. Encounters, which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year, looks at “the daily lives of Antarcticans.” From the article:

Herzog is known for visually stunning and insightful portraits that telescope the starkest of individual experiences into metaphors about the human condition. Here, lensing entirely on location, he explores the existence of people working in literally blinding conditions, as well as natural elements such as a volcano and, yes, penguins.

According to Variety, the film kicks off at the McMurdo Station research center, “with its yoga studios and ATMs,” before venturing into the icy wilderness surrounding the South Pole.

Encounters at the End of the World is set to debut June 11.
