"Lessons of Darkness," German film director Werner Herzog's poetic documentary about the destruction of the Kuwaiti oil fields during the first Iraq war screens at the New Museum for the exhibition, "After Nature." To help prepare the film for the screening, the New Museum contracted with Big Work Productions to re-edit portions of the film for its presentation.

In "Lessons of Darkness," Herzog perceives the desert as a landscape with its own voice. Virtually devoid of commentary, the imagery concentrates on the aftermath of the first Gulf War - specifically on the Kuwaiti oil fires. Following Herzog's explicit instructions, Big Work Productions re-edited "Lessons of Darkness," for the exhibition, "After Nature," at the New Museum.
