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


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.
