Werner Herzog writes “A lot of what you see in my films isn’t invention; it’s very much life itself, my own life. If you have an image in your head, hold on to it, because. as remote as it might seem, at some point you might be able to use it in a film.
I have always sought to transform my own experiences and fantasies into cinema.”
Yes! True metamorphosis.
Herzog continues: “My films come to me very much alive, like dreams, without explanation. I never think about what it means. I think only about telling a story, and however illogical the images, I let them invade me.”
