“It’s as much fun to anticipate what he’s (Herzog) going to say as it is to appreciate the snowy landscapes, belching volcanoes and mustachioed seals before his lens.” The Washington Post
One of the most distinctive filmmakers of our time, Werner Herzog has been called the “romantic visionary” of the New German Cinema movement. His edgy, larger-than-life films fuse the epic with the intimate, redefining the scale and scope of filmmaking to include more than 60 works shot on every continent. His early masterpieces Aguirre, The Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo (both starring Klaus Kinski) gained Herzog international attention. While his more recent successes Grizzly Man and Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans have cemented his virtuoso status and gained him myriad awards and an Oscar nomination. Herzog will appear in conversation with acclaimed author and essayist, Pico Iyer.
