Fitzcarraldo

N.p. New World Pictures, 1982. Vintage studio still photograph of Klaus Kinski from the 1982 film.

Herzog's brilliant, bold, and audacious "Fitzcarraldo," the story of the early 20th century rubber baron Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald (the ever manic Kinski) intent on building an opera house in the Peruvian Amazon and on transporting a 320 ton steamer over a mountain to access a rich rubber territory. Herzog's production being every bit as unrestrained and preposterous as the story he was filming. An astonishing and insane masterpiece whose outrageous production was documented by director Les Blank in his remarkable documentary "Burden of Dreams," 1982.

Winner of Best Director and nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival.

Set in Peru, shot on location in Peru and Brazil.

10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
