Werner Herzog, author of Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre, the Wrath of God, returns to Kosmopolis—this time by videoconference—to speak with the volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer about the third documentary they have made together, Fireball: Visitors from Darker Worlds, an inquiry into the cultural significance of meteorites, the impact their craters have had on humanity, and everything science has been able to learn about them. As always, Herzog is the narrator of this thrilling adventure, which has taken them from the Antarctic to the Yucatán Peninsula following the destructive trail of the asteroid that supposedly wiped out the dinosaurs. In Kosmopolis, we shall have a rare opportunity to enjoy this journey on the big screen and talk about it live with its directors.

8.30 p.m. – Conversation with Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer, moderated by the film critic Violeta Kovacsis
