Werner Herzog's Cinema: Between the Visionary and the Documentary

9 September 2005

By Daniela Munoz   

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.

How is the British police crackdown bill a threat to democracy?

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill creates new stop-and-search powers, allows the police to put more conditions on protests, and threatens Gypsy and Traveller rights to roam.

It's been met with mass protests from Bristol to Belfast. Is this bill a threat to our human rights – and is there any stopping it now?
