The full text of the interview, as well as a video extract, will no doubt appear in due course on the guardianinterviewsatbfisouthbank page on the Guardian website and so there is no need to set out much of what he said
It’s a monumental discovery. I dedicated the film to the three discoverers. In a way, they are the tragic figures in all this, because they thought they had some sort of proprietary rights and right of exploitation if it came to books and other things. They are suing the French states for 15 years now. They have lost every single lawsuit and appeal, and spent all their money.
It's impossible to read something Herzog says without hearing his voice. Reading Conquest of the Useless was amazing.I would sneak by every week to check out and pray that nobody had bought the book. Apparently I thought it was the only one. I still have it today, and look at it with sympathy, however, the book is really very mediocre. It’s a very stupid book. I mean, popular science and quite stupid.
Haha, Werner just encapsulated himself incredibly neatly. Is there a single one of his movies that title wouldn't fit?It’s strange, I’m now doing a film with death-row inmates, and as a general umbrella title, I thought about “Gazing Into The Abyss,” and then I thought that would have been a fine title for the cave film. It fits for almost every film I’ve made.
Police in Berlin are baffled over the identity of a boy who emerged from the forest, saying he'd lived there for five years with his father.
The boy, believed to be about 17, showed up at Berlin's City Hall on Sept. 5. He said he had lived in earthen huts and tents with his father until the elder man died.
