Film: Stroszek (German with English subtitles)
Directed by: Werner Herzog
Duration: 1 hr 55 mins

Another significant film by German master Werner Herzog, Stroszek was made in 1977 following the success of The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser (1974) and Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972). The story revolves around three people – an ex prisoner, an old man and a prostitute who leave Germany and head to Wisconsin for a better life. With an unpredictable plot laced with unique humor, Stroszek shows Herzog’s versatility as a director.
