  • Film programme "The Ecstatic Truth of Werner Herzog"

    [R] 01.03 Time 00.00

    From March to December of this year, documentary films by Werner Herzog, one of today’s most prolific and versatile film visionaries, will be screened on nine occasions as part of the Kumu Documentary series. In his dreamlike documentaries, Herzog, who has never studied at a film school, and does not recommend it to others, transports us to a dislocated universe, in which we live, but never become used to.

    The series includes thirteen extreme, ground-breaking films. The audience can see and experience the sheer beauty as well as horror of faraway places, enter into the joy-and worry-filled actions of ordinary people and eccentrics, and participate in a world of deaf and blind people who have been left totally alone, which, as a reflection for healthy people, is both flawless and imperfect. Just like our conventional world.

    Films are supported by the Goethe Institute and the U.S. Embassy in Tallinn.
