One of cinema’s most visionary, enigmatic and controversial directors, German film auteur Werner Herzog creates extreme, larger than life narratives that often blur the boundaries of reality and fiction. His eccentric, over-the-top characters –from actor Klaus Kinski’s maniacal conquistador in the 1972 classic Aguirre, the Wrath of God to the doomed “grizzly bear expert” in the 2005 documentary Grizzly Man—are often quixotic outsiders who test the limits of humanity with ill-advised hubris. This fascinating discussion with Herzog will be moderated by Paul Holdengräber, director of public programs at the New York Public Library.
8:00pm - 9:30pm at Royce Hall, UCLA. Tickets available here.
