Werner Herzog is cult! Celebrated as a director and with his work premiering at international film festivals, Herzog stands not only for his non-conformist attitude among cineastes, but is also highly popular among the internet-savvy generation.
There is hardly another living director who can keep pace with the extent of Herzog’s many contributions, not to mention his imitators on social networks. The popular television entertainers Joko & Klaas parodied him, Herzog has had guest appearances on the ‘Simpsons,’ and he has drawn a great deal of attention to the ‘Star Wars’ series ‘The Mandalorian’ (since 2019) by playing the villain. In around 70 feature films and documentaries, Werner Herzog has created extraordinary visual imagery that goes far beyond what we are accustomed to seeing at the cinema.
A press tour with the team of curators takes place at the Deutsche Kinemathek on 24 August, 2022, at 11 am. Invitations will be sent out shortly before the preview.
