Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe

January 13, 2013

Werner Herzog didn’t believe that Errol Morris would ever finish his documentary The Gates of Heaven. He bet Morris that if he ever finished it, he would eat his shoe.

Morris finished the job, and Herzog is a man of his word. He flew to Berkeley, stopped by Alice Waters at Chez Panisse, and cooked up his shoe. He ate it on stage at the UC Theater. Above is the short film made of the experience.
