The Wild Blue Yonder
Inspired by Werner Herzog, the director responsible for "Grizzly Man", "Fitzcarraldo", "Nosferatu", "Rescue Dawn", sit back and indulge in a weekend of a sheer cinematic heaven as we bring you three of Herzog’s great films to enjoy.
‘Cave of Forgotten Dreams’ gets us off to a perfect start on the Friday night, while on Saturday, it’s a double bill ﬁlm feast with ‘The Blue Wild Yonder’ and ‘Encounters At The End Of The World’. French ﬁlmmaker François Truffaut once called Herzog "the most important ﬁlm director alive", here’s a chance to really absorb the wonder of Werner Herzog. (see all three screenings for €12)
Also, with an environmental flavour to the weekend, we have something for all the family to enjoy. Drop in with the kids between 12pm & 2pm on Saturday afternoon for a free ECO
UNESCO workshop, learn how to recycle old junk into new items, then pop in to see the beautiful National Geographic family film ‘Arctic Tale’.
From legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog comes an inspired vision: as humans search for a new planet to colonize, aliens attempt to settle on the nearly-uninhabitable Earth. Oscar-nominee Brad Dourif (Deadwood, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Seed of Chucky) delivers a remarkable performance as he tells the aliens' story. Herzog has combined original NASA footage with Henry Kieser's incredible documentary images from beneath the Antarctic Ocean, as well as interviews with respected scientists, that culminate in his personal plea to save our planet.
Director: Werner Herzog
Stars: Brad Dourif, Donald Williams and Ellen Baker
