AIR WALKERS
The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner


Country: West Germany
Year: 1974
Duration: 43'
Direction: Werner Herzog

Sinopsis

He is undoubtedly one of the filmmakers who has filmed flight most and who has praised it most in his writings. Werner Herzog confesses that his frustrated dream of becoming a ski jumper led him to conquer the air through his camera and film. His portrait of Steiner, who he follows on the slopes just a few centimetres from his flight, has traces of a hagiography that tries to capture that angelical moment which has passed into our film heritage with the priceless soundtrack by Popol Vuh, in this flight slowed down to 20% of a hero of the sky. There is a stake in this film, a stake positioned at around 160 metres, which marks the point from which the jump exceeds human limits.  This stake is Herzog. He who passes it enters his film.
