Scuba Diving in Antarctica

The film is basically about the life of scientists in Antarctica. In addition to the dive team, Herzog interviews volcanologists, geologists, and a crazy penguin guy. The segment on diving is one of the longest sections and it’s absolutely-freakin’-beautiful.

The trailer will give you a taste for what the movie is like:
