Aguirre, Wrath Of God

Aguirre, Wrath Of God

Synopsis

“An ill-fated 1560 expedition into the Peruvian jungle provides the narrative genesis for Herzog's groundbreaking Aguirre, which imagines a grueling trek along the Amazon River by conquistadors hungry for gold. Madness sets in as the party ventures deeper into the wilds – battling hunger, exhaustion, and attacks by natives – and the expedition's fate falls under the increasingly ruthless leadership of the title character (Klaus Kinski).” – San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
