Herzog's Fireball & Other Hot Docs Alumni at TIFF

Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog and professor Clive Oppenheimer have partnered with Apple on an original feature documentary set to explore the mysteries of our galaxy. Fireball: Visitors from Darker Worlds is an Apple Original documentary about meteors and comets and their influence on ancient religions and other cultural and physical impacts they’ve had on Earth.

A Werner Herzog Film production, the film is produced by the London-based Spring Films and is made with the help and support of Sandbox Films, as well as Hot Docs Partners.
