Annotation:1972. Directed by Werner Herzog. Starring Klaus Kinski. The story follows the travels of Spanish soldier Lope de Aguirre, who leads a group of conquistadores down the Amazon River in South America in search of the legendary city of gold, El Dorado. Using a minimalist story and dialogue, the film creates a vision of madness and folly, counterpointed by the lush but unforgiving Amazonian jungle. Although based loosely on what is known of the historical figure of Aguirre, the film's story line is, as Herzog acknowledged years after the film's release, a work of imagination.

Description

When the 1962 Oberhausen Manifesto--signed by two dozen German filmmakers pledging themselves to "the new German feature film"--announced the arrival of New German Cinema, it was as much a rebellion of young directors against the propriety of the moribund German film industry as a new way of presenting images. In the late sixties and early seventies, filmmakers such as Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Margarethe von Trotta, Volker Schlöndorff, Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog, Alexander Kluge, and Hans-Jürgen Syberberg set out to create cinematic art on a smaller scale; movies that were independently-minded and artistically challenging and which would examine the state of contemporary Germany. Like other countries’ new waves, New German Cinema, whose end is placed in the mid-eighties, evaded easy political or artistic categorization, but whose boldness and radical ambition was unmistakable.
