Over thirty years ago, Werner Herzog challenged Errol Morris to shoot his first documentary. Morris had been plagued by non-starts in other creative areas like music and writing, and doubted he had the resources to accomplish the task.
Herzog declared that we would eat his shoes if Errol just made the damn movie. The result was Morris’ Gates of Heaven, a prolific award-winning career for Morris and this documentary short by Les Blank. Part 1 shown above, Part 2 here.
