Pratt Institute‘s Film/Video Department presents a special evening with filmmaker Werner Herzog, one of the most courageous, mythical, and influential artists of our time. Moderated by film and media curator Sally Berger, the discussion will launch the Pratt Institute School of Art (SoArt) Lecture Series.
Herzog has produced numerous films exploring and sometimes blurring the lines between documentary, experimental, and fiction film. In a compelling and candid discussion, the evening will explore Herzog’s vast career and his innovative and uncompromising approach to the medium.
Pratt’s School of Art and Film/Video Department share Herzog’s expansive vision that an artist’s work should cross boundaries and resist categorization without losing the maker’s own unmistakable voice.
The School of Art (SoArt) Lecture Series invites a prominent conversation-generating artist to the Pratt campus each year. For this inaugural lecture celebrating the recently formed School of Art, the school has partnered with the Film/Video Department to host Werner Herzog. The SoArt Lecture Series is supported by Pratt Presents.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 12, 7 PM
WHERE: Higgins Hall Auditorium, Pratt Institute, 61 St. James Street, Brooklyn, NY 11205
The event is free and open to the public; reservations required. Please visit giving.pratt.edu/pages/evening-with-werner-herzog to make a reservation.
