The Werner Herzog movie of Antarctica has been announced. I like the tag line: "Off the map, things get strange. Werner was quite a guy. His life story was quite humbling for me. We had a personal screening (and world premiere) of his movie "Rescue Dawn" when we were on the ice.

He was filming when I was on the ice. We had a lot of fun with his right hand man Peter. I think he was from the Eastern Block and lived now in Belgium. There is a possibility there is a shot of me in the film. I am not featured though for sure. It will be interesting to see it. The folks I worked with and the scenery of Antarctica comes back pretty easy. I looked at one of his pictures on the web site and I could feel the dry-cold and hear the loud crunching of the ice/snow beneath my feet over the ever present and pervasive silence.
