Based on real events, real people, and real things they actually said, My Dinner with Werner is a wildly bizarre and wacky farce about a 1987 dinner date with a murder plot as the main dish.

Director's Statement

For over 15 years, acclaimed filmmaker Werner Herzog made movies with controversial actor Klaus Kinski. Their work together was legendary. Their partnership was notorious. Their methods were dangerous. And their "friendship" was stranger than fiction. But in 1987, they mysteriously stopped working together - forever. This film is the story of what "really" happened - the night it all went devilishly wrong. Thoroughly researched in all things Herzog and Kinski, this is my attempt to rewrite history in a fun, loving, and radical way. My Dinner with Werner is a chaotic chamber-piece farce about friendship, love, art ...and chickens.
