Program Locations:

Mid-Manhattan Library

Please join us on Wednesday, March 14 at 7 p.m. for Werner Herzog's "The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser" (1974, 110 min). The screening will take place in the first floor Corner Room of the Mid-Manhattan Library and will be followed by a brief discussion.  A full schedule of the Films of Werner Herzog series is available online at: bit.ly/herzog-nypl.

"In Herzog the line between fact and fiction is a shifting one. He cares not for accuracy but for effect, for a transcendent ecstasy. Kaspar Hauser tells its story not as a narrative about its hero, but as a mosaic of striking behavior and images..."
—Roger Ebert, rogerebert.com
