  Wodaabe: Herdsmen of the Sun

 Join Cinefamily April 1-3, April 8 for:

THE ECSTATIC TRUTHS OF WERNER HERZOG: Documentaries, 1971-1992

Co-presented by Goethe-Institut Los Angeles


In recent years, audiences have become more aware of Herzog's skills as a
documentarian, but a closer look at his career shows a fascination with
the non-fiction form going back to the very beginning. No one has done
more than Herzog to promulgate the deeper truth that every fiction film
has an element of documentary, and that all documentaries are
constructed fictions. Herzog's docs show an appreciation for
imagination, poetry, adventure, and most of all—how documentaries at
their best can be an expression of one artist's vision of the world.
Join Cinefamily for twelve of his finest early docs! April 1-3 & 8,
2011. More info and screening schedule: www.cinefamily.org/calendar/herzog.html
