Summary:BALLAD OF A RIGHTEOUS MERCHANT explores the process through which this event, for which an ancient myth was the catalyst, is transformed into fiction. Building on the legacy of previous documentaries about Herzog, this one shows a side of him known only to his friends and close collaborators. Refreshingly candid and surprisingly revealing, this portrait in no way diminishes the revered director's mystique. Rather, it deepens appreciation of his humanity and offers as much an ongoing conversation with the viewer as with Herzog. The film is an insider's insight into his enduring and unmistakable craft. With humor and warmth to match its philosophical insights, BALLAD OF A RIGHTEOUS MERCHANT explores some of the deepest and most abiding themes of Herzog's films through this unique chronicling of one of his most idiosyncratic works.
