"Werner Herzog and I were talking about maybe doing a video, he wanted to do a video with The National, and we were really excited about that, even though it never ended up happening. His idea, he said, was [Werner Herzog impression], “I want to put the whole band on a live volcano, very close to the lava. I want it to be very dangerous for you, and I want to see you try to play your instruments while the lava  is all around you.” And we were like, “That sounds awesome!” I don’t know about the logistics of making that work, but he definitely wanted us to be in serious danger, just to see if a band could actually play a song while lava is surrounding them. "

- MATT BERNINGER (lead singer of The National) about the music video they almost shot with WERNER HERZOG.

the remote and little known rice terraces of yuanyang county in china’s yunnan province were built by the hani people along the contours of ailao mountain range during the ming dynasty five hundred years ago. the terraces, once planted during the early spring season, are then irrigated with spring water from the forest above, which reflect sunlight to create the images seen here.

I assume von Trier’s next movie will just be two people fucking while Stalker plays on a nearby television.
