SYNOPSIS

In 1974 Werner Herzog walked from Munich to Paris, an act of faith to prevent the death of his mentor Lotte Eisner.

A journey through villages, nature, loneliness and cold, looking for the meaning of filmmaking. Including fragments of the book "Of Walking in Ice" by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog narrated by himself exclusively for the film, DEAR WERNER (Walking on cinema) is a We love cinema production, with the collaboration of La Cinémathèque Française and Werner Herzog
