An Evening with Werner Herzog

François Truf­faut once called Wern­er Her­zog the sin­gle most impor­tant direc­tor on the plan­et, and TIME mag­a­zine (with Rogert Ebert writ­ing the relat­ed arti­cle) ranked Her­zog as one of the 100 most influ­en­tial peo­ple alive today. Last April, Her­zog, a “roman­tic vision­ary” of the New Ger­man Cin­e­ma move­ment, vis­it­ed the UC San­ta Bar­bara cam­pus where he spent rough­ly two hours in con­ver­sa­tion with the author and essay­ist, Pico Iyer. The video above skips over two intro­duc­tions, includ­ing one by Iyer him­self. So if you’re look­ing for more con­text, you can always rewind to the very begin­ning… H/T to @eacion and via Film Stud­ies for Free.
