“Werner Herzog Discovers John Waters is Gay” 235,000 views on YouTube
German New Wave director, Werner Herzog, in a gag shot, though he has been threatened by some.
As a Werner Herzog fanatic, I discovered this hidden clip, from what is probably one of the least known films about Herzog, “On the Ecstasy of Ski-Flying: Werner Herzog in Conversation with Karen Beckman.”
It is a must for anyone who admires Herzog’s frankness as a creative filmmaker and cultural commentator.
The number of views of this clip seems to accelerate, since I posted it on YouTube.
The non-profit producer/distributor of the documentary allowed me to post it, with the hope that it might give their work more visibility. It think it is a success for them!
