Part of the W. Herzog Film Season
Truly a masterpiece and like all great works of art it is not easy.
The story concerns a town in which the master glass maker is searching for the formula to make "ruby glass" which has been lost after the previous master died unexpectedly.
The whole film, co-written by the extraordinary Herbert Achternbusch is richly steeped in alegory and a mythology unique to it's own universe. Herzog claims the cast performed all their scenes under hypnosis.

This must be Herzog's most controversial film. Set in an unidentified institution a rebelion has taken place and anarchy reigns supreme.
Film: Stroszek (1977)

The deluded search of the American dream. Utterly brilliant.

The season wouldn't be complete without a film starring the inimitable Klaus Kinski. The most famous of W. Herzog films. T ranscendent.
