Shown as part of the Werner Herzog Retrospective

THE WILD BLUE YONDER (USA / United Kingdom / France / Germany, 2005, 81 min.)

The story of astronauts lost in space, the secret Roswell object re-examined and Brad Dourif

cast as an alien, telling us all about his home planet–the Wild Blue Yonder–where the atmosphere is composed of liquid helium and the sky is frozen. Using beautiful, previously unseen footage, incorporating information from the five astronauts responsible for the Galileo mission, and with haunting, especially composed music, Herzog has created a spectacular vision of imagery, sound, music and human emotion-all part of his science-fantasy. Directed by Werner Herzog.
