Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe (1980)

Film details


Documentary. Les Blank makes a detour from his usual subject - American music - to document film-maker Werner Herzog and fulfil a promise he made to young American film-maker Errol Morris that he would eat his shoe if Morris made a film he had been talking about for some time. Morris finished GATES OF HEAVEN - and Herzog honours his promise.
