OverviewThree Documentaries by Werner Herzog
The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner, 1974, 45 min.
Lessons of Darkness, 1992, 55 min.
Bells from the Deep, 1993, 60 min.
These three films expand our ideas of what a documentary can be. The first is a profound and achingly beautiful account of world champion ski-jumper Walter Steiner's almost spiritual desire for flight. The second offers an astonishing, otherworldly vision of the oil fires in Kuwait after the 1990 Gulf War. The third presents a lyrical investigation of Russian mysticism.
$10 general; $8 SFMOMA members, students, and seniors. Tickets are available at the Museum (with no surcharge) or online. Ticket includes all three films.
