Encounters at the End of the World

Saturday, September 5, 2009

Fascinating documentary based on a journey to Antarctica - but do not be mistaken, this is not a documentary about Penguins - the author declares that his questions about nature are rather different, he admits wondering about why Humans like to wear masks or put on feathers (cowboys and indians) to disguise their identities, why ants make use of aphids and milk them, but in the same sense wonders why a more evolved and complex brain like that of a chimpanzee does not make use of his lesser evolved animal relatives, and ride off on a goat into the sunset.

This is a social sciences and travel/Cultural documentary with a different edge on it. A well worth watching insight into MucMurdo Antarctica and the people who you will find there.
