Werner Herzog’s Herakles.

Herzog’s first short is an odd juxtaposition of footage of preening make bodybuilders and documentary images of disasters: a car crash at Le Mans, a collapsed building, American fighter jets dropping bombs. Not particularly successful (even Herzog seems to dislike it) none the less it is interesting, showing his preoccupation with the terror of the real from literally his very first foray into film.
