Anyone who's ever caught UT grad Schmoeller's short film "Please Kill Mr. Kinski" knows that Werner Herzog is hardly the only director to be driven crazy by half-myth/half-man actor Kinski. Schmoeller also had that unique opportunity while making this film in which Kinski plays the demented son of a Nazi surgeon. Director David Schmoeller will be in attendance.
