Marriage, Wife, and Kids

Herzog married his third spouse, photographer Lena Herzog in 1999. He had three children from past relationships.

Career and Net Worth

Herzog's movies, typically set in unmistakable and new scenes, are saturated with supernatural quality. In Even Dwarfs Started Small, the microcosm of a fruitless island possessed by midgets represents a bigger reality. In Fata Morgana (1971), a documentary on the Sahara, the desert obtains its very own ghostly existence. One of Herzog's most popular movies, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, pursues a band of Spanish pilgrims into an unmapped domain, recording their steady mental and physical implosion. Every Man for Himself and God Against All or The Mystery of Kaspar Hauser is a retelling of the Kaspar Hauser legend. Herzog's most practical film, Stroszek (1977), is an ambivalent story of confinement concerning a German outsider who, with his two maverick mates, sees the dairy terrains of Wisconsin as lonelier and more dreary than the ghettos of Berlin.

Later in his career, Herzog concentrated principally on narratives, including Ringers from the Deep, which analyzes strict convictions among Russians, and Grizzly Man, a record of Timothy Treadwell, an American who studied and lived among mountain bears in Alaska, however, was destroyed to death alongside his sweetheart. Little Dieter Needs to Fly (1997) focuses on a German American pilot shot down in the wilderness during the Vietnam War; the story enlivened Herzog's account film Rescue Dawn (2007), the screenplay of which was the first Herzog wrote in English. Among Herzog's later narratives were Encounters toward the End of the World (2007), which highlights the excellence of Antarctica, Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010), which investigates in 3-D the ancient works of art at the Chauvet collapse France, Into the Abyss (2011), a dismal assessment of a Texas murder case, and Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World (2016), about the Internet. In Meeting Gorbachev, co-directed with Andre Singer, he chronicled the life of the former leader of the Soviet Union.

In December 2019, The Mandalorian was released on Disney + to rave reviews. Herzog stars on the show as The Client.
