Like a moth to a flame, Werner Herzog seems drawn to the sinister beauty of volcanoes. For La Soufrière (1977) he travelled to a volcano on Guadeloupe, which – according to scientists – is about to erupt. In Antarctica he filmed Mount Erebus’ crater. For Into the Inferno (2016) he climbed active volcanoes, among other things, in North Korea.

With an unorthodox oeuvre of more than seventy features, documentaries and shorts, Herzog has fascinated audiences with unforgettable stories, images and characters for more than half a century. His films grant us insights into the relationship between people and the chaotic world around them, as well as into the endless indifference of nature towards human life.
