Into The Inferno

Into The Inferno is filmmaker Werner Herzog’s latest documentary and it sees himself and volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer set out on a surreal journey which takes them all around the globe where they explore some of the world’s most mythical volcanoes.

We see Herzog and Oppenheimer travel to North Korea, Ethiopia, Iceland and the Vanuatu Archipelago. Through speaking with scientists and the indigenous people who live directly in the vicinity of such volcanos they seek to better their understanding of the deeply rooted relationship that exists between mankind and one of nature’s greatest wonders.

In typical Herzog fashion we are taken on a profound journey which beautifully blends reportage, history and philosophy into one great cinematic experience.
