OverviewSigns of Life and Early Shorts by Werner Herzog
Last Words, 1968, 13 min.
Precautions Against Fanatics, 1969, 12 min.
Signs of Life, 1968, 90 min.
Two rarely seen early shorts provide the context for Herzog's acclaimed first major feature film, Signs of Life. Set during the Nazi occupation of Greece, Signs of Life is a strange and affecting reflection on the absurdity of war. A German soldier goes mad, locks himself in a fortress, and shoots fireworks at the town square, killing a donkey.
$10 general; $8 SFMOMA members, students, and seniors. Tickets are available at the Museum (with no surcharge) or online. Ticket includes all three films.
