You Have to Bury Your Father First: An Interview with Werner Herzog

The German filmmaker discusses his recent work, the state of cinema, and the end of times in an expansive & candid conversation with us.
Daniel Kasman, Kurt Walker
MUBI is showing the Werner Herzog retrospective L'absolu, le sublime et la vérité from May 18 - December 22, 2017 in France.
After accepting the Le Carrosse d'Or award from the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes, we had the chance to sit down with the master for an expansive conversation concerning his recent works, the ongoing evolution of cinema, and the apocalypse.
Special thanks to Ben Simington.
