Dear Werner

Pablo Maqueda

Spain, 2020 - 80'

A love letter to one of the greatest filmmakers of all time.


In 1974 Werner Herzog walked from Munich to Paris, an act of faith to prevent the death of his mentor Lotte Eisner. In 2020, a young filmmaker walks following in Herzog ́s footsteps in an act of love to one of the best filmmakers of our time. Pablo Maqueda collaborated with Herzog and the resulting film has been described as poetic, inspirational and beautiful. This “film letter” is a meditation on filmmaking and a must see for admirers of Werner and lovers of film.
