“To the heavens soar the hurtling flames of the almighty gods, the engulfing doom…” That’s what you get when you ask Werner Herzog to talk about volcanoes – and that’s exactly what he does for an hour and 44 minutes in Into the Inferno, Netflix’s new original documentary.
The film, which premiered at the Telluride Film Festival earlier this year, sees the German director and volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer embark upon a global journey exploring some of the world’s most mythical volcanoes in North Korea, Ethiopia, Iceland and the Vanuatu Archipelago.
Even the poster promises epic things:
Speaking with scientists and indigenous peoples alike, the duo seek to understand the complex and deeply rooted relationship between mankind and one of nature’s greatest wonders. And also use phrases such as “engulfing doom”.
