Aguirre, The Wrath of God (Germany/Peru)
(©Werner Herzog Film)
Directed by Werner Herzog; 1972, 94 mins.

This dreamlike evocation of the real-life quest for the lost city of gold, El Dorado, established Werner Herzog as a filmmaker of unique vision and reckless eccentricity. It also inaugurated his legendary partnership with volcanic actor Klaus Kinski, who plays the title role. Thomas Mauch’s award-winning photography – his eight-man crew nearly lost their equipment in rapids during a grueling six-week shoot in the Peruvian jungle – ravishes the eye as well as creating another world, reinforced by the striking music of Florian Fricke and his ‘krautrock’ group Popol Vuh. “Images that are literally unforgettable.” – David Ansen

Programmed by Film Forum.

Join us at 7PM for Peruvian delights from Inti Sumaq and music by Andes Fusion. The film will begin at sundown.
