Errol Morris and Werner Herzog in Conversation

Bran­deis Uni­ver­si­ty has just post­ed a ter­rif­ic dis­cus­sion between film­mak­ers Wern­er Her­zog (Griz­zly ManThe Cave of For­got­ten Dreams) and Errol Mor­ris (The Fog of War, The Thin Blue Line) from 2007. The two doc­u­men­tary titans shared the stage for over an hour, talk­ing about their long friend­ship, the mak­ing of doc­u­men­taries, and Her­zog’s film Encoun­ters at the End of the World. No shoes were served.
