As interviews go, not many are as exciting as Werner Herzog. A true icon of cinema, it was our pleasure to sit down with (virtually, of course) to discuss his latest venture, Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds. He was paired alongside co-director and frequent collaborator Clive Oppenheimer, a volcanologist (how cool is that word?) as we wanted to discuss this new project, and how they managed to succeed in ensuring it remained an entertaining, cinematic endeavour. In short – how did they make a doc about meteors not boring?

We discuss their working relationship, and also ask Herzog about his experiences as a filmmaker, and what this particular film added to what is a long list of incredible life moments, and moments we’re grateful he’s shared with us.

Watch the full interview with Werner and Clive here:


Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds takes viewers on an extraordinary journey to discover how shooting stars, meteorites and deep impacts have focused the human imagination on other realms and worlds, and on our past and our future.
Fireball: Visitors From Darker Worlds is available to watch on Apple TV+ now.
