Werner Herzog’s Into the Inferno Trailer


After missing out on Werner Herzog’s latest documentary Into the Inferno at TIFF, I’m excited to learn that Netflix is already bringing it to their streaming service later this month. The movie looks to be another Herzogian meditation on the beauty and raw power of nature along with humanity’s ultimate insignificance in the face of it. Teaming up with volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer, whom he previously met while making his Antarctica documentary Encounters at the End of the World, Herzog sets off across the globe to look at volcanoes in such countries as Ethiopia, Iceland, Indonesia, and North Korea. From what we hear, the North Korea trip takes a strange detour into politics as well, but based on this trailer, it certainly looks like must-see material. Into the Inferno arrives on Netflix on Oct. 28th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
