Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer (a volcanologist) have always been amazed by the power of volcanos.

In this documentary, they travel the glove and visit active volcanos in North Korea, Ethiopia, Iceland, and Indonesia. Their journey has a goal to understand a man’s relationship with one of nature’s most violent wonders.

Herzog and Oppenheimer want to minimize the destructive impact of the volcano. To do that, they need to understand how they work, and what can men do to minimize the destructiveness of the volcano.

The documentary features stunning views of eruption and lava flows, capturing the raw power of the volcano.

In conversation with local people, the duo tries to understand the ties of the volcano with the indigenous spiritual practices.

The documentary is science at its most accessible level. Not many people can survive being close to an active volcano, but Herzog and Oppenheimer bring that amazing feeling to life and close to the audience.
