Synopsis by Augustine Chay

This documentary is a poetic, scientific and philosophical meditation on how meteors and comets have influenced ancient religions, cultures and topographies around the world. Journeying from the Australian desert to France, India, the Bering Straits, the Yucatan Peninsula, and Antarctica, it contemplates the myriad meanings that humanity has associated with otherworldly debris and the craters they leave behind. Directed by Werner Herzog and University of Cambridge volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer.
