In this compelling new film, Werner Herzog’s extraordinary life and work are brought into focus through clips from his finest films and interviews with those who know him best. This fascinating and insightful documentary explores the career of the auteur director, writer and poet, whose adventures in filmmaking are often as extraordinary as the stories they tell. Visits to his early family home and interviews with his brothers and partners offer personal insights into the formation of the young man who would go on to become a key German New Wave director, while contributions from collaborators and admirers, including Chloe Zhao, Wim Wenders, Nicole Kidman, Robert Pattinson and Joshua Oppenheimer, offer testament to the lasting appeal of this unique artist. Drawing on clips from key titles in Herzog’s canon and time spent at one of his masterclasses, von Steinaecker explores his creative process, resulting in a compelling portrait of one of the cinema’s most distinctive and original voices.
