Born in Munich 1942, Werner Herzog grew up in a remote valley in the Bavarian mountains. Until age 11, he did not even know of the existence of cinema. He started to develop film projects at age 15, and since no one was willing to finance them, he worked the night shift as a welder in a steel factory during the last years of high school. He also started to travel on foot. He made his first phone call at age 17 and his first film at 19. He dropped out of college where he studied history and literature. Since then, he has written, produced, and directed some 60 films, has published books of prose, staged about a dozen operas, acted in films, and founded his own Rogue Film School.

Herzog’s five-channel video, Hearsay of the Soul, was presented at the 2012 Whitney Biennial. It was subsequently presented at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco and the Getty Museum, Los Angeles.
