Filmaker Wener Herzog Takes on La Boheme

Filmmaker Werner Herzog will premiere a four-minute short film this weekend at the Venice Film Festival. His film, commissioned by ENO and Sky Arts asked directors to imagine an operatic number in purely visual terms.

Using "O Soave Fabciulla" from La boheme he took this aria to the Mursi people of Ethiopia.

A brief clip below shows what he came up with. We imagine the full version will be up soon after, t which point we will post it here.
