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.
Fantastic! But would it be possible to have an audio-only version, as well? I can’t really afford to waste bandwidth on talking heads. Thanks!
