he's made them in some of the farthest corners of the world but we met up with him in his hometown of munich where at the age of 15 he decided to become a filmmaker. who. always knew i was the the others because i didn't know much about film and hadn't seen many movies i also knew that i would have to invent cinema myself a few mistakes that. help so revolutionized german post-war films and with his more than 70 productions he's also broaden their horizons of global sense of his work cannot be assigned to one single genre and he considers himself neither a european nor a german filmmaker. i think i belong to a more regional category that is very unfair and the opulence of life that's why i sometimes say big the 2nd of the very out would have been the only other person who
could have made fitzcarraldo could in. german actor clothes kinski plays fitzcarraldo the film is the story of a madman who's obsessed with building an opera house in the middle of the jungle and has a ship hauled over a mountain to do it then a household made film history with these iconic images. 20 years ago he moved to los angeles and he's worked with some of hollywood's biggest stars but whether it's rescue dawn or bad lieutenant hats only stays true to himself. up to this. bitter tenants of barry and review the soviets who made such wild in iraq movie while to the water of this table that took the. fast it's really intense. surely. what

a few for instance up. first of all i find it go to ask for a full length films last year other people need 6 years to do that they should give me these awards when i haven't made a movie in 10 years and need to be rolled on to the stage in a wheelchair. then i had saw this certainly not one to rest on his laurels spans at any rate i hope he'll be making his iconic classic films for many years to come. finally it's the darkest time of year here in northern europe and therefore high season for light festivals i leave you with pictures from the french city of. spectacular festival of lights this year which is just stars and continues over the weekend thanks for watching.
