Herzog’s Minnesota Declaration: Defining ‘ecstatic truth’ | Roger Ebert’s Journal | Roger Ebert

When the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis ran a month-long tribute to Werner Herzog in 1999, I was asked to join Herzog for a question-and-answer session at the end of the month. On that occasion he issued the following “Minnesota Declaration” of his principles. For the first time, it fully explained his theory of “ecstatic truth.” – Roger Ebert
