The award-winning director of Grizzly Man and Fitzcarraldo talks about his inspiring career in cinema.
Herzog was once hailed by Francois Truffaut as the most important director alive. Famous for his frequent collaborations with mercurial actor Klaus Kinski - including the epics Aguirre, the Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo, and the terrifying Nosferatu - and more recently with documentaries such as Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams and Into the Abyss, Herzog has built a body of work that is one of the most vital in post-war German cinema.
Here, he reflects on his legendary and inspiring career.
Paul Cronin is a film-maker who has also edited Herzog on Herzog, as well as Alexander Mackendrick's On Film-making.
