Western Wild...or How I Found Wanderlust and Met Old Shatterhand

Martha Colburn

Western Wild…or how I found Wanderlust and met Old Shatterhand is a densely textured documentary about a filmmaker making a film about the famed German author Karl May.  The film weaves through a mixture of stop motion animation, interview, travelogue and biography that itself is enough to generate sensory Wanderlust.
