Werner Herzog

When its late I spend my time looking up obscure things on the internet. I type 'shoes' into any and every search engine bringing up video, art, film and politics (read: Bush). Sometimes I find something interesting.

In 1980, Werner Herzog, filmmaker, grew up in remote Bavaria and viewed nor used any TV or film or telephones. At 19 he made his first film. This Youtube clip shows Herzog talking about the problems with pop culture and the lack of adequate images in 1980. Nearly 30 years on, we have the same problems. Are we really evolving?

Oh and he eats his shoe!
