Inspired by a landmark court case in Australia, Herzog’s mystically-infused film merges fact and fiction in a dizzying display of cinematic prowess. When an abusive mining company wants to tear open the soil to search for uranium in a remote Outback location, the Aborigine residents object. The mining location, they believe, is the place where the green ants go to dream, and that if their dreams are disturbed, it will bring disaster upon us all.
