As part of the How To Academy's programme of lectures, Werner Herzog, famed for his work with actor/madman Klaus Kinski in fiction films like Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre, and the documentaries Grizzly Man and Cave of Forgotten Dreams, will be in conversation with Paul Holdengräber. The theme is "Herzog: Guidance for the Perplexed." This follows a recent Herzog collection of conversations in Paul Cronin's book: Werner Herzog - A Guide for the Perplexed: Conversations with Paul Cronin.
Werner Herzog has produced, written, and directed more than 60 feature and documentary films, including Grizzly Man, Woyzeck, Aguirre, The Wrath of God, Fitzcarraldo, and Cave of Forgotten Dreams. Born in Munich in 1942 and raised in a remote mountain village in Bavaria, Herzog never saw films or television as a child and made his first phone call at the age of 17.Paul Holdengräber
