herzog runs “rogue” film school (+ collaborates with lynch)

Via the (non official) fan page dedicated to Werner Herzog on Fb – http://www.facebook.com/wernerherzog.ds – I’ve just learned the most fascinating news: our favourite living director Werner Herzog has opened a film school. (Maybe the news is quite old, I don’t know, but I thought I’d (re)share it anyway.)

In “Herzog on Herzog” (London: Faber and Faber 2002 – http://www.faber.co.uk/work/herzog-on-herzog/9780571207084/ – ISBN 9780571207084) der Werner had already developed the most fascinating plans for a film school. Check pages 12 to 16 via http://books.google.be/books?id=ydN_2oj8M0wC – or else try http://www.rowthree.com/2008/11/15/on-filmmaking-werner-herzog/ – for an introduction to Herzog’s exciting vision, one that is also consistent, incidentally, with his walking from Munich to Paris on foot in 1974, as documented in his book “Vom Gehem im Eis” (1978 / 1981) – http://www.fischerverlage.de/buch/Vom_Gehen_im_Eis/9783596183470 – ISBN 9783596183470, translated in English as “Of walking in ice” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Of_Walking_In_Ice -, in French as “Sur le chemin des glaces” – http://www.pol-editeur.com/index.php?spec=livre&ISBN=2-86744-137-4 – and in Dutch as “Over een voettocht door de kou” (no info on Prometheus publishers’ site).

Then, after visiting Google Books, do go out and order the full “Herzog on Herzog”, as it is one of the very best books I’ve yet read on film making, and an utter must for everyone who loves both the personality and the movies of Werner Herzog. (Thank you Paul Cronin for insisting and ultimately convincing Mr. Herzog to have himself interviewed so diligently.) On pages 227-228, you’ll find Herzog commenting on his eight part, 240′ film documentary “Film Lesson” (Vienna, 1991).

(Am a tad sceptical about the “Bad lieutenant” remake – Ferrara’s film was perfect as it was and who can possibly better Keitel’s role – but still … can’t wait to see it – and “My son, my son, what have ye done” too. And what to think about Lynch teaming up with Jodorowsky?!?)
