Hertzog’s “Heart of Glass”

VIRGINIA MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS | FRI, JAN 11, 2013 | 6:30 – 9 pm

Film and Talk:
Werner Herzog’s Heart of Glass with Glass Artist Paul Marioni
“Heart of Glass” tells the story of an 18th-century Bavarian glassblowing village whose inhabitants spiral into collective madness when they lose their secret formula for ruby-red glass. Herzog directed this rarely seen but mesmerizing film using techniques no one had ever considered, including hypnotizing the actors. 1976; 94 min; subtitled.

Following the screening, preeminent glass artist Paul Marioni discusses the film as well as his own works, which are often inspired by dreams. Mr. Marioni is a pioneer in the Studio Glass Movement with colleague Dale Chihuly. http://www.vmfa.museum/Films/
