Werner Herzog. Two words, but a man of many titles. Named one of the world’s 100 most influential people by Time, Herzog is an Academy Award®-nominated trailblazer. He is a film director, screenwriter, author, actor, and opera director best known for his unusual filmmaking process.
His credits include GRIZZLY MAN, FITZCARRALDO, AGUIRRE – THE WRATH OF GOD, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, SALT AND FIRE, and more.
Herzog had a 320-ton steamboat hauled over a steep hill in Peru, climbed down into volcanoes, talked to murderers on death row, cooked and ate his own shoe and once was at the end of a barrel of a gun.
He walked from Munich to Paris to prevent the death of a female film critic he greatly admired and wrote a book about it. Moreover, he has lent his voice to THE SIMPSONS and appeared in blockbuster movies such as JACK REACHER and the hit series THE MANDALORIAN.
It is stories such as these that have made this remarkable filmmaker a cult ﬁgure the world over.
