The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival has scored a coup, landing Werner Herzog, one of the most influential and surely the most interesting documentary filmmakers ever for its upcoming festival, Oct. 6-15. No word yet on what Herzog will be talking about or what film he'll be bringing, but just about anything should be worth your time. See the videos above and below.
