A FILM BY: Werner Herzog
WRITTEN BY: Werner Herzog

Werner Herzog turns the camera on himself and his decades-long friendship with the late travelwriter Bruce Chatwin, a kindred spirit whose quest for ecstatic truth carried him to all corners of the globe. Herzog’s deeply personal portrait of Chatwin, illustrated with archival discoveries, film clips, and a mound of “brontosaurus skin,”encompasses their shared interest in aboriginal cultures, ancient rituals, and the mysteries stitching together life on earth."

“An encomium to a lost friend. [Herzog] imbues the film with rich narration, unforgettable characters and National Geographic-worthy landscape shots all his own.” — Rolling Stone
“Larger than life, just as both the director and its subject.” — Film Threat
“A poignant testament to two friends’ shared curiosity about the world.” — The Hollywood Reporter
