WERNER HERZOG (German: ; born 5 September 1942) is a German screenwriter, film director, author, actor, and opera director.
Herzog is considered one of the greatest figures of the New German Cinema , along with Rainer Werner Fassbinder , Margarethe von Trotta , Volker Schlöndorff , Werner Schröter , and Wim Wenders . Herzog's films often feature heroes with impossible dreams, people with unique talents in obscure fields, or individuals who are in conflict with nature.
French filmmaker François Truffaut once called Herzog "the most important film director alive." American film critic Roger Ebert said that Herzog "has never created a single film that is compromised, shameful, made for pragmatic reasons, or uninteresting. Even his failures are spectacular." He was named one of the 100 most influential people on the planet by _Time_ magazine in 2009.

Herzog was born Werner Stipetić in Munich , to Elizabeth Stipetić, an Austrian of Croatian descent, and Dietrich Herzog, who was German. When Werner was two weeks old, his mother took refuge in the remote Bavarian village of Sachrang (in the Chiemgau Alps ), after the house next to theirs was destroyed during a bombing raid in World War II . In Sachrang, Herzog grew up without running water, a flushing toilet, or a telephone. He never saw films, and did not even know of the existence of cinema until a traveling projectionist came by the one-room schoolhouse in Sachrang. When Herzog was 12, he and his family moved back to Munich. His father had abandoned the family early in his youth. Werner later adopted his father's surname _Herzog_ (German for "duke"), which he thought sounded more impressive for a filmmaker.
The same year, Herzog was told to sing in front of his class at school, and he adamantly refused, and was almost expelled. Until he was age eighteen, Herzog listened to no music, sang no songs, and studied no instruments. He later said that he would easily give ten years from his life to be able to play the cello. At an early age, he experienced a dramatic phase in which he converted to Catholicism, which only lasted a few years. He started to embark on long journeys, some of them on foot. Around this time, he knew he would be a filmmaker, and learned the basics from a few pages in an encyclopedia which provided him with "everything I needed to get myself started" as a filmmaker—that, and the 35 mm camera he stole from the Munich Film School. In the commentary for _ Aguirre, the Wrath of God _, he says, "I don't consider it theft. It was just a necessity. I had some sort of natural right for a camera, a tool to work with". He won a scholarship to Duquesne University and lasted only a few days, but lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania . During his last years of high school, no production company was willing to take on his projects, so Herzog worked night shifts as a welder in a steel factory to earn the funds for his first featurettes. After graduating from high school, he was intrigued by the Congo after its independence, but only reached the south of the Sudan where he fell seriously ill.
While already making films, he had a brief stint at Munich University , where he studied history and literature.
He earned money by participating in preproduction of a documentary for NASA with KQED . Summoned to the immigration office because of a violation of his visa status, he chose to flee to Mexico.
Before leaving school, he bought a house in the UK, in what was likely the Moss Side area of Manchester . There he learned to speak English. In 1962, he made his first short film, Herakles. In school there was an emphasis on Latin and Greek, in which he continues to read to this day.
In 1971, while Herzog was location scouting for _Aguirre, the Wrath of God _ in Peru, he narrowly avoided taking LANSA Flight 508 . Herzog's reservation was cancelled due to a last-minute change in itinerary. The plane was later struck by lightning and disintegrated, but one survivor, Juliane Koepcke , lived after a free fall. Long haunted by the event, nearly 30 years later he made a documentary film, _Wings of Hope _ (2000), which explored the story of the sole survivor.

Herzog, along with Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Volker Schlöndorff, led the beginning of the West German cinema movement. The West German cinema movement consisted of documentarians that filmed on low budgets and were influenced by the French New Wave of cinema.
Besides using professional actors—German, American and otherwise—Herzog is known for using people from the locality in which he is shooting. Especially in his documentaries, he uses locals to benefit what he calls "ecstatic truth." He uses footage of the non-actors both playing roles and being themselves.
Herzog and his films have been nominated for and won many awards. His first major award was the Silver Bear Extraordinary Prize of the Jury for his first feature film _Signs of Life _ (_ Nosferatu the Vampyre _ was also nominated for Golden Bear in 1979). Most notably, Herzog won the best director award for _ Fitzcarraldo _ at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival . In 1975, his movie _ The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser _ won the _Grand Prix Spécial du Jury _ (also known as the 'Silver Palm') at the Cannes Festival. Other films directed by Herzog nominated for Golden Palm are: _Woyzeck _ (1979) and _ Where the Green Ants Dream _ (1984).
His films have been nominated at many other important festivals around the world: César Awards (_ Aguirre, the Wrath of God _), Emmy Awards (_ Little Dieter Needs to Fly _), European Film Awards (_My Best Fiend _) and Venice Film Festival (_ Scream of Stone _ and _The Wild Blue Yonder _).
In 1987, Herzog and his half-brother Lucki Stipetić won the Bavarian Film Award for Best Producing for the film _ Cobra Verde _. In 2002 he won the _Dragon of Dragons Honorary Award_ during Kraków Film Festival in Kraków .
Herzog was honored at the 49th San Francisco International Film Festival , receiving the 2006 Film Society Directing Award. Four of his films have been shown at the San Francisco International Film Festival: _ Wodaabe - Herdsmen of the Sun _ in 1990, _Bells from the Deep _ in 1993, _ Lessons of Darkness _ in 1993, and _The Wild Blue Yonder _ in 2006. Herzog's April 2007 appearance at the Ebertfest in Champaign, Illinois earned him the Golden Thumb Award, and an engraved glockenspiel given to him by a young film maker inspired by his films. _ Grizzly Man _, directed by Herzog, won the Alfred P. Sloan Prize at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival . _Encounters at the End of the World _ won the award for Best Documentary at the 2008 Edinburgh International Film Festival and was nominated for the Academy Award for Documentary Feature , Herzog's first nomination.

Herzog once promised to eat his shoe if Errol Morris completed the movie project on pet cemeteries that he had been working on, in order to challenge and motivate Morris, whom Herzog perceived as incapable of following up on the projects he conceived. In 1978, when the film _ Gates of Heaven _ premiered, Werner Herzog cooked and publicly ate his shoe, an event later incorporated into a short documentary _Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe _ by Les Blank . At the event, Herzog suggested that he hoped the act would serve to encourage anyone having difficulty bringing a project to fruition.
In 2009, Herzog became the only filmmaker in recent history to enter two films in competition in the same year at the prestigious Venice Film Festival . Herzog's _The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans _ was entered into the festival's official competition schedule, and his _ My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? _ entered the competition as a "surprise film". Herzog also provided the narration for the short film _Plastic Bag_ directed by Ramin Bahrani which was the opening night film in the Corto Cortissimo section of the festival.
Dissatisfied with the way film schools are run, Herzog founded his own Rogue Film School in 2009. The program is a 4-day seminar with Herzog, which occurs annually (the last of which was held in March, 2016 in Munich). Courses include "the art of lockpicking. Traveling on foot. The exhilaration of being shot at unsuccessfully. The athletic side of filmmaking. The creation of your own shooting permits. The neutralization of bureaucracy. Guerrilla tactics. Self reliance." For the students, Herzog has said, "I prefer people who have worked as bouncers in a sex club, or have been wardens in the lunatic asylum. You must live life in its very elementary forms. The Mexicans have a very nice word for it: _pura vida_. It doesn’t mean just purity of life, but the raw, stark-naked quality of life. And that’s what makes young people more into a filmmaker than academia."
Herzog was the president of the jury at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival in 2010.
Herzog completed a documentary called _ Cave of Forgotten Dreams _ in 2010, which shows his journey into the Chauvet Cave in France. Although generally skeptical of 3-D film as a format, Herzog premiered the film at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival in 3-D and had its European premiere at the 2011 Berlinale. Also in 2010, Herzog co-directed with Dimitry Vasuykov _Happy People: A Year in the Taiga _, which portrays the life of fur trappers from the Siberian part of the Taiga , and had its premiere at the 2010 Telluride Film Festival .
Herzog has narrated many of his documentary films, and he lent his voice to an animated television program for the first time in 2010, appearing in _The Boondocks _ in its third-season premiere episode _It\'s a Black President, Huey Freeman _. In the episode, he played a fictionalized version of himself filming a documentary about the series' cast of characters and their actions during the 2008 election of Barack Obama .
Continuing with voice work, Herzog played Walter Hotenhoffer (formerly known as Augustus Gloop ) in the Simpsons episode _The Scorpion\'s Tale _ which aired in March 2011. The next year, he also appeared in the 8th-season episode of _ American Dad! _ called _Ricky Spanish _, and lent his voice to a recurring character during the 4th season of the Adult Swim animated series _ Metalocalypse _. In 2015 he voiced a character for Adult Swim's Rick and Morty . He also appeared opposite Tom Cruise as the villain in the 2012 action film _Jack Reacher _.
Herzog gained attention in 2013 when he released a 35-minute Public Service Announcement -style documentary, _From One Second to the Next_, demonstrating the danger of texting while driving and financed by AT"> A notable example is _ Fitzcarraldo _, in which the obsessiveness of the central character was reflected by the director during the making of the film. _ Burden of Dreams _, a documentary filmed during the making of _Fitzcarraldo_, explored Herzog's efforts to make the film in harsh conditions.
His treatment of subjects has been characterized as Wagnerian in its scope, and _ Fitzcarraldo _ and his later film _Invincible _ (2001) are directly inspired by opera, or operatic themes. He is proud of never using storyboards and often improvising large parts of the script. He explains this technique in the commentary track to _Aguirre, the Wrath of God _.
Herzog considers his prose and poetry writings, such as "Of Walking in Ice", and "Conquest of the Useless", as having more enduring value than his films.
Herzog has preferred to develop a team to work with, both of actors and technical people. He has gathered a group who appeared in numerous films.

That was Mauch and Herzog's final collaboration.
Jörg Schmidt-Reitwein worked with Herzog on seventeen films. Reitwein was Thomas Mauch's assistant camera during _Even Dwarfs Started Small_. His first independent work for Herzog was _Precautions Against Fanatics_ in 1969. He helped to create the poetical atmosphere of _Fata Morgana_, _Heart of Glass_, _The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser_ and _Nosferatu_.

She was nominated for a Saturn Award for _Nosferatu the Vampyre_ in 1979.
German Krautrock band Popol Vuh , founded by pianist and keyboardist Florian Fricke, have composed music for eight of Herzog's films: _Aguirre, the Wrath of God_, _The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner_, _Heart of Glass_, _Nosferatu_, _The Dark Glow of the Mountains_, _Fitzcarraldo_, _Cobra Verde_ and _My Best Fiend_. Their compositions were also used by Herzog in _Rescue Dawn_. Florian Fricke made a cameo as a pianist in _Signs of Life_ and _The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser_. The band took its name from the _Popol Vuh,_ a manuscript of the Quiché Maya kingdom. They had seen Herzog's _Fata Morgana_, in which Lotte Eisner reads parts of the _Popol Vuh._
Since 2001 and the passing of Florian Fricke, for orchestral scores Herzog has mostly chosen Klaus Badelt . The first of so far four collaborations, "Invincible" (2001) was actually one of Badelt's first film scores. Badelt also wrote the scores to "Rescue Dawn" (2006), "Happy People: A Year in the Taiga" (2010), and is currently working on Herzog's upcoming feature "Queen of the Desert" (2015).

His music was also used in _Rescue Dawn_ and in a video documentary about recording music for _Grizzly Man._ It was entitled _In the Edges: The 'Grizzly Man' Session_ directed by Erik Nelson. Reijseger also had a cameo in _My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done_.
