Short Interview with Werner Herzog
Here is a short clip of Werner Herzog discussing his early life. He lived in a relatively remote part of Bavaria due to the bombings of WWII, and was insulated from much of the aspects of modern culture that we've become accustomed to. Due to his seclusion from Cinema, he was forced to learn to make films without the comprehensive film knowledge most people in cities grow up inundated with.
They touch on one aspect of any great auteur, after 5 seconds of watching any of their films, you automatically know that you are seeing a Herzog film.
