March 28, 2012

Please join us on Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. for Werner Herzog's "Stroszek" (1977, 116 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:

"Constantly working against Mr. Herzog's very cool view of the human condition is not only the humor...but also the physical beauty of the landscapes, the cityscapes and the squalid interiors. This visual lyricism, which at first seems at odds with the subject, eventually becomes a further celebration of Stroszek's survival."
—Vincent Canby, New York Times
