No One Will Play with Me (Werner Herzog, 1976)

A short film by Werner Herzog. The film focuses on a boy, Martin, who is outcast from the other children at his school. The film was made with pre-school children in Munich, and is partially based on true stories which Herzog heard from the children themselves. The use of a raven as a central plot element was inspired by the story of the raven from Herzog’s earlier film The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner.
