Cine Interzone: W. Herzog double bill LA SOUFRIERE 1977
Directed by Werner Herzog
30 minutes
In English

In 1976 Werner Herzog hears a report that a volcano called La Soufrière will erupt on the island of Guadaloupe, and that the capital port city of Basse-Terre has been completely evacuated. He runs there with a small crew to record the oncoming disaster and talk with the few people who refuse to leave. Herzog risks his life (along with his crew) in order to make this film. The result is a work of stark beauty, a mediation on death and loneliness.

Directed by Werner Herzog
76 minutes
In German with English subtitles

Herzog goes to the Sahara Desert to capture mirages on film... leave it to Werner to attempt to make a metaphysical documentary. The result is
an apocalyptic work... surreal images of the desert accompanied only by an insane narration of a Mayan Popol Vuh creation myth, and the songs of Leonard Cohen. Everything in the movie is seen from a non-human point of view. Pure hallucinogenics.
This will be a high-definition screening.
