Werner Herzog: Radical Dreamer (UK Import)
Master filmmaker, auteur, poet, truth seeker, pith-helmeted explorer, brand, meme, actor, lauded voice artiste, doomsayer, legend… that's Werner Herzog. This is the man, now 81, who had a 320-ton steamboat hauled over a steep hill in Peru, who hypnotises his actors, climbs down into volcanoes, talks to murderers on death row, cooks and eats his own shoe and was once shot at. He's the man who lends his voice to The Simpsons, stars in blockbusters such as The Mandalorian and the man – who in an almost magical act – walked from Munich to Paris to prevent the death of a woman film critic he greatly admired. It is stories like these that have made this most remarkable director a cult figure the world over.
With exclusive behind-the-scenes access into Herzog's everyday life, rare archive material and in-depth interviews with the man himself and celebrated collaborators – including Christian Bale, Nicole Kidman, and his wife Lena Herzog – we are given an exciting glimpse into his work process and personal life. Also appearing in the film are Joshua Oppenheimer, Robert Pattinson, Patti Smith, Carl Weathers, Wim Wenders and Chloe Zhao.
WERNER HERZOG: RADICAL DREAMER is produced by Wavelength, Spring Films and 3B-Produktion in association with Hot Docs Partners. The producers are André Singer (a filmmaker and anthropologist whose award-winning film NIGHT WILL FALL was released by BFI Distribution in 2014), Bernhard von Hülsen and Maria Willer.
