In a wonderfully liberating creative age, crossing the boundaries between
documentary and fiction is no longer heresy. One of the greatest proponents
of the ability to "create poetry" from our lives is Werner Herzog. With
THE WILD BLUE YONDER he has embarked on what he regards as his most exciting
and challenging film yet.
THE WILD BLUE YONDER is the story of astronauts lost in space, the secret Roswell object re-examined and BRAD DOURIF as alien, telling us all about his home planet -the Wild Blue Yonder- where the atmosphere is composed of liquid helium and the sky frozen.
Using unique, beautiful, and unseen footage,with access to the five astronauts responsible for the Galileo-mission, and with haunting specially composed music, Herzog has created a spectacular vision of imagery, sound, music and human emotion, all part of his science-fantasy.
