Still image from Aguirre, Wrath of God
Klaus Kinski stars as a Spanish conquistador who uses tyranny and his over-inflated ego to lead an ill-fated trip down the Amazon in search of the fabled riches of El Dorado. Featuring some of Werner Herzog’s most complex and intricately staged camera set-ups, as well as authentic and treacherous on-location settings, Kinski strips away the veneer of his fearless, entitled leader to reveal abject terror and an almost hallucinatory progression towards insanity.Both Herzog and Kinski push themselves to their breaking points to reveal a man simultaneously drunk on power and feverishly unable to maintain a grasp on the escalating breakdown of his fortunes. This screening is sponsored by the William T. Patten Foundation and IU Cinema. The Patten Lecture series invites eminent writers, scholars, and artists to the Bloomington campus, offering stimulating opportunities for intellectual exchanges and artistic expressions.(2K DCP. 93 min. Not rated.)
