The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner & The Dark Glow of the Mountains
"This is the point where ski-flying starts to be inhuman." WOODCARVER STEINER (1973) Swiss woodcarver Walter Steiner rewrites the record book of ski-flying as #1 fan Herzog plays dueling microphones with ABC Sports then attains transcendence in super slo-mo close-ups of unbelievable flights, underscored by Popol Vuh. "Beautiful, moving, and exhilarating." - Vincent Canby, The New York Times.
DARK GLOW OF THE MOUNTAINS (1984) The first to climb Everest without oxygen or support, legendary mountaineer Reinhold Messner not only climbed for the hell of it, he carried along a Super- 8 camera as well. Obviously another Herzog blood brother.
