deranged penguin

leave a comment »

Deranged penguin from Werner Herzog’s Encounters at the End of the World. 

A lone penguin leaves his colony at the sea edge and walks inland toward the mountains and mainland – to certain death according to the filmmaker.  Why?  It reminds me of Ford Madox Ford’s Scapegoat, in the sense that there is an ostracism going on whether or not self imposed.

This is Herzog’s new film, sure to be a good one.
