On the basis of his feature films, it would seem that Werner Herzog prefers South America to its northern counterpart. In fact, though, the director lived in Pennsylvania for a time, and developed an interest in the sort of Americana documented in his How Much Wood Could a Woodchuck Chuck, a 45-minute study of auctioneering. Herzog’s film is the featured attraction at tonight’s WPA/Corcoran presentation, “DC Small Cinema,” which also features short films by Brian Price, Todd L. Stubbie, and Jawbox drummer Zachary Barocas. At 9 p.m. at the Central Armature Annex, 625 D St. NW. $3. (202) 737-5917. (MJ)
