Werner Herzog + Jonathan Demme

Jun 5, 2008

Werner Herzog and Jonathan Demme are two of the most accomplished and adventurous filmmakers in contemporary cinema. Emerging on the international scene in the 1970s, they have each made—and continue to make—a wide range of fiction and documentary features: Demme’s films include Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, and Neil Young: Heart of Gold, while Herzog’s include Aguirre: The Wrath of God, The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser, and Encounters at the End of the World. This lively conversation between the Demme and Herzog was presented to celebrate the launch of the Museum’s new website Moving Image Source, a Museum website devoted to the history of film and media.
