HERZOG & MORRIS


In 1975 Wisconsin, Errol Morris is hiding out next to the childhood home of notorious serial killer Ed Gein as the latest in a long line of failed projects threatens to likewise unravel in his hands. His friend Werner Herzog rolls into town with a 16mm camera and four rolls of black & white film stock insisting that the key to Errol getting his debut documentary off the ground is to dig up the corpse of Ed Gein’s mother at the local cemetery… and film themselves doing it! Resisting his mentor’s sinister appeals, Errol finds himself disappearing into a film noir of his own making until he catches a brief glimpse of his creative future and the destiny that awaits him - if he’s got the guts!
