Werner Herzog Germany, 1992

Available to rent

We close our series of Herzog docs with one of his most daring, unforgettable works. Few words. Few interviews. Just sound and vision, emerging from the Gulf War’s wreckage with a look at hell-on-earth too unreal to exist—but it did. One of his best. Stay tuned this summer for Herzog’s features!
