The university of Kent, the Institut Francais, and the Goethe Institut London will celebrate and examine the cinema of Werner Herzog through a conference on the films of the great German director. It accompanies the screening of a range of Herzog's documentaries and also the U.K premieres of Herzog's most recent film The wild Blue Yonder (2005).

If you live in or are visiting the UK, don't loose the opportunity to get to know this mystical figure of New German cinema, widely known as the director of the Enigma of Kaspar Hauser and Fitzcarraldo.

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
