Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972, Werner Herzog)
An epic historical drama which explores the doomed expedition of conquistador Gonzalo Pizarro in the 1560s, as he leads his army through the Amazon on a suicidal mission to find the legendary Inca city of El Dorado.
The striking visual imagery of the Peruvian jungle is counterpointed by the madness and greed of Aguirre, who will stop at nothing to complete his search for gold. Made on a tiny budget with a stolen camera from the Munich film school and with the spirit of guerilla film making at its heart, Aguirre, the Wrath of God’s production process is as fascinating as the story itself. It is haunting, ecclesiastical, human and yet something else.
