La Soufriere + God's Angry Man + Huie's Sermon (Dir. Werner Herzog)

As part of the BFI's Werner Herzog retrospective, they are screening three of his lesser known short documentary works, described as three very different meditations on mortality, spirituality and religion. In La Soufriere he travels to Guadaloupe to interview an old man who refuses to be evacuated in advance of a volcanic eruption. In God's Angry Man he interviews TV evangelist Gene Scott, a man known equally for his fervent moral crusades and his penchant for tax evasion. In Huie's Sermon he films a sermon given by Bishop Huie Rogers to his congregation in Brooklyn.

    Hey Mark, really enjoyed meeting u at my first event. The opening film was my favourite. la Soufriere depicted a man with nothing (material), tanked up on peace whilst fully expecting death to call upon him. Bizarrely he is interviewed by an equally peaceful Herzog film crew, prepared to die it seems (with no drama whatsoever) to record this footage!! I hope to meet u all soon and learn more about this wonderful genre (don't think i can make 7th July)MJ

      I really enjoyed it too! The dead-pan narration in the face of extreme situations is absolutely typical of Herzog. It would take some pretty remarkable qualities to be part of a Herzog film-crew. The other two films were very different. In God's Angry Man he simply allowed the guy to condemn himself with his own words and actions, and in Huie's Sermon he just recorded an extraordinarily charismatic performance. Sorry you can't make 7th July, but hope to see you again soon.

      I haven't seen these, but I've seen plenty of other Herzog documentaries, and have never seen any that wouldn't be suitable.
