“Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe” (1980) at Machine Project
Join us for the next installment of our EATS of Borneo series: A special screening of “Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe” (1980), in memory of the great documentary filmmaker Les Blank who passed away on April 7.
The short documentary features Herzog fulfilling the bet that if his friend Errol Morris completed his film on the subject of pet cemeteries—what would be Morris’s debut release “Gates of Heaven” (1979)—Herzog would eat his shoe. The film follows Herzog as he cooks his own Clarks boots in duck fat and garlic with the help of Alice Waters at Chez Panisse.
Refreshments will be served.
EATS of Borneo is an ongoing series of events focused on food, art, and community.
