Werner Herzog: Radical Dreamer
July 15, 2023 2:45 pm - 4:45 pm
Feature Documentary/2022/Germany, UK/102min/Directed by Thomas von Stainaecker
From the epic visions of his early feature films – Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Fitzcarraldo – to his unique documentaries – Grizzly Man, Encounters at the End of the World – Herzog has carved a unique place in world cinema.
He is a filmmaker who walked across Europe with a film print, he has shot movies in South American rain forests, the Antarctic wilderness, and the burning oil fields of Kuwait.
He was shot while doing an interview, he’s appeared in The Simpsons and even acted in The Mandalorian.
He ate his own shoe.
In Radical Dreamer, the director discusses his life and filmmaking, opening up for the camera and revealing something of the man behind some of the greatest films of the last fifty years.
With contributions from Christian Bale, Nicole Kidman, Chloe Zhao, Wim Wenders and Patti Smith, Radical Dreamer is essential viewing.
