Gosling Oscar Mention

Bong Joon-ho, last year’s winner of Best Director for PARASITE, in introducing the five nominees for director this year’s Oscar Awards gave a statement from each about what they say about being a director. This year’s winner for Best Director, Chloé Zhao, said “A director is a jack of all trades and master of none and when things go wrong, watching BURDEN OF DREAMS and asking yourself, ‘What would Werner Herzog do?'”
Maureen Gosling “was totally surprised and delighted to see that reference to the film I did with Les Blank, one of the early “making of” documentaries, about German director, Werner Herzog, shooting his feature FITZCARRALDO in the Peruvian Amazon.”
