Part of the Herzog of the Month Season
Les Blank's BAFTA award winning documentary goes behind the scenes of one of the most extraordinary film shoots in history - Werner Herzog's epic Fitzcarraldo. The film has remarkable access - a candid portrait of a director struggling against desperate odds to achieve something totally uncanny, walking a fine line between dedication and total obsession. With each disaster and obstacle comes more and more insight into Herzog at his most intense. An essential companion piece, Burden of Dreams has been described by some critics as even more astonishing than the finished feature film.
Happy birthday Werner Herzog!
