A Tribute to Werner Herzog

The new release of the veteran filmmaker and documentarist "The White Diamond" is a another milestone in the long career of Werner Herzog and is now out on DVD.

The list of Herzog-films is long and overwhelming. The friend and director of famous Klaus Kinski is a star himself.

After years of close work-relationships with Kinski and multiple films - after the death of Kinski - Herzog released the intimate documentary portrait of Kinski Mein liebster Feind where Herzog tells the story of such feature projects like Fitzcarraldo and his experiences with Kinski. If you have seen this haunting film once and learned about such anecdotes as the "Kinski-Twist" then the images and intriguing voice of Herzog will never leave you.

1So be sure to check out the new DVD-release of Herzog's White Diamond, a film about a journey into the rainforest and a journey back to the roots of an accident, the deadly expedition of Dieter Plage who crashed with his blimp in 1993.

Plot Synopsis: THE WHITE DIAMOND is a film about the daring adventure of exploring rainforest canopy with a novel flying device-the Jungle Airship. Airship engineer Dr.Graham Dorrington embarks on a trip to the giant Kaieteur Falls in the heart of Guyana, hoping to fly his helium-filled invention above the tree-tops. But this logistic effort will not be without risk. Twelve years ago, a similar expedition into the unique habitat of the canopy ended in disaster when Dorrington's friend Dieter Plage fell to his death. With the expedition is Werner Herzog, setting out now with a new prototype of the airship into the Lost World of the pristine rain forest of this little explored area of the world, to record and tell this unique story in an extraordinary, feature-documentary film.

featuring: Dr. Graham Dorrington, Werner Herzog, Jan-Peter Meewes, Anthony Melville, Dr. Michael Wilk
