In this story of power and madness, a whole army in search of the legendary El Dorado disappears into the jungle without a trace. Arguably Werner Herzog’s most famous production, this film follows a Spanish explorer, Aguirre, who loses his mission, men and mind on an Amazon adventure. Shot entirely on location and answering only to the logic of Peru’s natural beauty, the film seems an examination of madness from the inside. Sumptuous, spellbinding and unforgettable, Aguirrewas the first of five filmic collaborations between Herzog and the volatile Klaus Kinski. Directed by Werner Herzog.
