Fifth of a ten-part series of feature-length documentaries made by independent film-makers. Lessons of Darkness
German director Werner
Herzog (whose credits include Fitzcarraldoand Nosferatu) has made an impressionistic documentary about the after-effects of war in Kuwait, to mark the first anniversary of the Gulf War. Since his first feature, Signs of Life, Herzog's films have been dominated by landscape imagery. In this film he joined forces with documentary-maker
Paul Berriffand turned his vision to the Stygian darkness of "Satan's National Park". He presents a deeply personal and often surreal view of a world on fire, in the hope of capturing "a poetical vision of the new landscapes which have emerged in Kuwait".
This programme is being simultaneously transmitted in France, Germany and Spain. Senes editor Andre Singer
