Netflix just pushed out the trailer for another original documentary, this time from Werner Herzog, called Into the Inferno. I’m a big fan of documentaries that are artfully shot with care and precision, and I think this one is going to be amazing.
Today, Netflix debuted the trailer and key art for Into the Inferno. Directed by Werner Herzog, Into the Inferno heads just where its title suggests: into the red-hot magma-filled craters of some of the world’s most active and astonishing volcanoes—taking the filmmaker on one of the most extreme tours of his long career.
Into the Inferno premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. The film will launch globally on Netflix on October 28, including a limited theatrical release.
Werner Herzog 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. Speaking with scientists and indigenous peoples alike, they seek to understand the complex and deeply rooted relationship between mankind and one of nature’s greatest wonders. Produced by Spring Films, Werner Herzog Film and Matter of Fact Media, Into the Inferno artfully blends reportage, history and philosophy into a riveting cinematic experience.
