The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner

Die große Ekstase des Bildschnitzers Steiner

Directed by Werner Herzog
West Germany, 1974
Short, Sport

Synopsis

Filmmaking and ski jumping are both death-defying professions. In 1972 and 1977 Steiner was the world ski-flying champion and an Olympic Gold winner. Steiner is the quintessential Herzogian, an obsessed, super-confident hero, but he is someone who knows his limits.
