Every Night the Trees Disappear
Every Night the Trees Disappear ›
By Alan Greenberg, Foreword by Werner Herzog
Price 24.95


Published May 2012

This intimate chronicle about the visionary filmmaker Werner Herzog explores his unorthodox methods in directing the film Heart of Glass. Twenty-four-year-old Alan Greenberg showed up unannounced at Herzog’s Munich home; by the end of their first evening together Herzog urged him to collaborate on his current projectâ€â€and everything thereafter. Sharing how unusual Herzog’s renegade filmmaking methods could be, Greenberg explains how Herzog hypnotized the actors prior to shooting their scenes, creating a profoundly haunting cinematic experience. More than a conventional journalistic account, this book interweaves the original screenplay with Greenberg’s observations from his work on the film, allowing the married texts to play off each other hypnotically and create a unique vision with the feel of a novelâ€â€intimate, penetrating, and filled with mystery.

We are located in the heart of Chicago, in the city's River North neighborhood.
