Must Watch: Official Trailer for Herzog's Volcano Doc 'Into the Inferno'
"It is hard to take your eyes off the fire that burns deep under our feet." Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for Werner Herzog's other new documentary this year, titled Into the Inferno, which premiered at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals. Into the Inferno is Herzog's investigation into volcanoes, along with volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer. They travel the world and explore various cultures and concepts related to volcanoes. It's one of Herzog's best, and is definitely worth seeing, I totally loved it. Not only does he have some jaw-dropping footage, but it's fascinating to follow his tangents and side stories. I wrote in my review that it "examines the act of creation, with vivid imagery and utterly engrossing discussions." Watch below.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Werner Herzog's documentary Into the Inferno, from YouTube:
Werner Herzog and volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer travel the globe and visit volcanoes in Indonesia, Ethiopia and even North Korea in an attempt to understand man's relationship with one of nature's most violent wonders. Into the Inferno is both written and directed by legendary German filmmaker Werner Herzog, of docs including Ballad of the Little Soldier, Bells from the Deep, Little Dieter Needs to Fly, Wings of Hope, Grizzly Man, Encounters at the End of the World, Into the Abyss and this year's doc Lo & Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. This first premiered at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals. Netflix will open Into the Inferno streaming + in theaters on October 28th this fall. Highly recommended.
