“He preaches maxims like getting the shot by any means necessary, carrying bolt cutters everywhere, and thwarting institutional cowardice with guerrilla tactics. His entire career has been built on a DIY approach to life, his craft banged into existence through decades of trial and failure.”

While famed German film director/screenwriter, Werner Herzog, is being interviewed by a skateboard magazine, he is quick to bring up his childhood in Bavaria and his connection to skiing including the 1974 ski jumping film he directed “The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner.” Fascinating interview, definitely curious Russian Orthodox church choir music’s ability to imply a strange feeling of space would translate in a ski movies. Check out that ski jumping movie below if the interview wets your appetite:
