About Werner Herzog in brief
Werner Herzog (born 5 September 1942) is a German film director, screenwriter, writer, actor, and opera director. He is considered a figure of the New German Cinema. His films often feature ambitious protagonists with impossible dreams, or individuals who are in conflict with nature. He was named one of the world’s 100 most influential people by Time magazine in 2009. He has published more than a dozen books of prose, and directed as many operas as he has feature films. He currently lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with his wife and two children, and has a daughter and son-in-law who live in Manchester, England. He also has a son with his ex-wife, and a daughter with his current wife, who lives in New York City. He had a son and daughter with a woman who is now his second wife, and they have a son who is in his early 20s. His daughter is the daughter of former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, and his son is the son of former Prime Minister Michael Schumacher. Herzog is married to former German Foreign Minister Ursula von Tucholsky, who is also a film director and screenwriter. He and his wife have three children, all of whom are now living in the U.S. and have a daughter who is due to graduate from college in the spring of 2015. He lives with his family in Pittsburgh and has two children with his third wife, Laura Herzog, and one daughter with whom he has one son, Michael Herzog Jr.
The couple have two children who are now in their late 20s and 30s, and have been married for more than 20 years. He says he has no regrets about his early life. He believes that he would have been a better filmmaker if he had spent more time with his mother and father, and not spent so much of his time travelling. He would like to have spent more of his life in the Congo, but in attempting to travel there, reached only the south of the country. He wants to spend more time in the United States with his girlfriend, who he met in Pittsburgh. He hopes to one day open a film production company in Pittsburgh with his daughter, Laura, and to have a family of his own. He plans to open a cinema in Pittsburgh one day, but has no plans to do so at the moment. His first film, Herakles, was made when he was 19, and he has since directed more than 60 feature films and documentaries. The Wrath of God was his first feature film, and it was released in 1961. His second film, Heart of Glass, was released two years later, in 1962. His third film, The Vampyre, came out in 1963, and was released the following year.
