My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? is a 2009 film directed by Werner Herzog and produced by David Lynch, inspired by the story of murderer Mark Yavorsky. Herzog describes the film as "a horror film without the blood, chainsaws and gore, but with a strange, anonymous fear creeping up in you." The film is an international co-production between the United States and Germany. The film was conceived and written in 1995, but Herzog and co-writer Herbert Golder were unable to find anyone to produce it. Lynch eventually became interested, and production was planned to begin in the Summer of 2008, but was postponed in favor of Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. Filming began around San Diego, California in March 2009. Both films were nominated for the Golden Lion at the 66th Venice International Film Festival, the first time that two films in one year by the same director were nominated.
