If you've seen the film Grizzly Man, then you're familiar with filmmaker Werner Herzog's obsession with the beauty and extremity of nature. His latest, Encounters at the End of the World, is set in Antarctica, and promises to be as haunting as ever, as Herzog's team explores the places above and beneath the endless ice.
Herzog's work is a great example of art that has the potential to inspire environmental action; it's hard not to be affected by those vast landscapes and that warm, distinctive voice.
