Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe
An enthusiastic chef, well-known filmmaker Werner Herzog packs some cooking aromatics right into his footwear and also utilizes the laces to truss it like a poultry, before he sticks it right into a pot with water as well as duck fat to stew it. It is so that he can bring the stewed shoe to one of the initial testings of Errol Morris' debut film Gates of Paradise (1978) to eat it. This act will satisfy his loss of a bet to Morris, who he fulfilled as a trainee filmmaker, that he would never ever be able to make a movie. The bet was not Herzog's attempt of a stab against Morris, but rather to support a battling however gifted Morris in his quest to do whatever was called for to fund a motion picture task. In the process of eating the shoe, Herzog wishes to encourage other aiming filmmakers, as well as to establish an agenda of increasing what he calls sufficient pictures as a true representation of the globe.
