Today, with all these virtual realities that are emerging so fast,
cinema and filmmakers have to find new answers. I try to articulate
an “ecstasy of the truth”; something that illuminates us, something
that goes beyond our conception of normality, of the factual world.
To achieve this kind of truth (and I use the term “truth” cautiously,
because even mathematicians or philosophers can’t tell us what truth is),
I try to find a way to access the real world that reveals to us, so that
the audience leaves the cinema richer than when they entered.
Something that they can´t forget easily. – Werner Herzog
