The White Diamond

Airship engineer Dr. Graham Dorrington is a walking contradiction: He displays the exuberance of a six-year-old boy in the weary face of a man haunted by his past. In 1993, he attempted to pilot a balloon over Sumatra, but saw his friend and cinematographer die when the voyage didn't go as planned. A decade later, Dorrington is committed to trying again, although this time he's willing to risk only his own lifeā€”and, reluctantly, that of daredevil documentarian Werner Herzog, who delivers an engaging portrait. To not accompany him up, Herzog says, would be "stupid stupidity."
