Heart of Glass

A film by Werner Herzog
Starring Josef Bierbichler, Stefan Güttler, Clemens Scheitz

Herzog hypnotized the entire cast and crew during shooting for this tale of an 18th-century Bavarian glassblowing town whose coveted ruby red glass recipe is lost forever with the death of the town’s master glassblower. Believed to have magical properties, the local Baron is obsessed with the ruby glass, and with the loss of the secret, he soon descends into madness along with the rest of the townspeople. Hias, a seer from the hills, foresees the fiery destruction of the factory amongst the madness.
