The 2016 Sundance Film Festival awards us this hour of conversation with two giants of documentary film.
The enigmatic Werner Herzog debuted his 28th documentary feature last week at Sundance 2016 to the subject of much speculation and conversation. Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World is an exploration of technology, interconnectivity, and human progress done in a way only Herzog could: from a place of eccentric empathy, ineffable curiosity, and technological naivety. Acclaimed filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer, the creator of the massively influential The Act of Killing and its 2015 followup The Look of Silence, sits down to talk with Herzog about the current state of humanity, the mystery of images, and the crucial difference between journalism and filmmaking.
