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.
