Fitzcarraldo

Posted in Kulturecast by - May 12, 2016

Chris and Sean are joined by film critic Oscar Moreno as they continue their Werner Herzog retrospective with a look at another Herzog/Kinski collaboration: Fitzcarraldo. The film stars Kinski as the eponymous Fitzcarraldo as he attempts to build an opera house in the middle of the Amazon jungle. To do so, he gets the help of native people to drag a steamship over a mountain, which Herzog actually achieved for the film.
