Landscapes in Trance. Werner Herzog: Reading and Discussion

Werner Herzog, director of more than 40 feature films and documentaries that rank among the milestones of cinematic art, talks with writer Jan Brandt about the importance of writing and literature for his work. From the essay »Of Walking in Ice« about a hike from Munich to Paris in the winter of 1974, which has its own magic as a meditation on life and death, to the legendary diary of the filming of »Fitzcarraldo« with Klaus Kinski and his memoir »Every Man for Himself and God Against All« (2022).

Hosted by Jan Brandt.
