Product Description:

This is a poetic meditation on life and death by one of the most renowned and respected film-makers and intellectuals of our time. In November 1974 when Werner Herzog was told that his mentor Lotte Eisner the film-maker and critic was dying in Paris he set off to walk there from Munich 'in full faith believing that she would stay alive if I came on foot'. Along the way he recorded what he saw how he felt and what he experienced from the physical discomfort of the journey to moments of rapture. It is a remarkable narrative - part pilgrimage part meditation and a confrontation between a great German Romantic imagination and the contemporary world. This edition of the book is being published for the first time as a classic piece of proto-psychogeography to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of the legendary director's walk.
