With stunning views of eruptions and lava flows, Into the Inferno captures the raw power of volcanoes and their ties to indigenous spiritual practices on this quest to understand the mysterious, violent, and rapturously beautiful phenomenon. 


About Werner Herzog

Werner Herzog is widely known for his prolific and daring body of cinematic work, including both narrative and documentary masterpieces. He began his film career in the early 1960s and quickly established himself as a powerhouse within the evolving New German Cinema movement of the 1970s. Over the next several decades Herzog would challenge and inspire movie-going audiences with his stunning excessive realism, eccentric and deeply intense protagonists, and poignant visions of anti-conformity. Hailed by critics and colleagues alike, Francois Truffaut famously cited Herzog as “the most important film director alive.” He has produced, written, and directed more than sixty feature and documentary films comprising such world-cinema classics as Aguirre, The Wrath of God (1972), The Enigma of Kasper Hauser: Every Man For Himself and God Against All (1974), Nosferatu (1978), Fitzcarraldo (1982), Lessons of Darkness (1992), Little Dieter Needs To Fly (1997), My Best Fiend (1999), Grizzly Man (2005), and Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010). In addition to his dynamic directorial career, Herzog has published more than a dozen books of prose, and directed as many operas.
