Films of Werner Herzog: Heart of Glass


March 21, 2012

Program Locations:

Mid-Manhattan Library

Please join us on Wednesday, March 21 at 7 p.m. for Werner Herzog's "Heart of Glass" (1974, 94 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:

"...a dreamlike atmosphere of vision, of hallucination, of prophecy, of going through life as if sleepwalking through it, of materialism and of collective madness...If you're in the mood for a one-of-a-kind film that is haunting but obscure, that demands intellectual analysis, then this Herzog film should give the thinking viewer much to chew on..."
—Dennis Schwartz, Ozus’ World Movie Review
