Film Fest Gent in Vooruit
Film Fest Gent - Aguirre der Zorn Gottes (live concert)

In the 16th century, the ruthless and insane Don Lope de Aguirre leads a Spanish expedition in search of El Dorado. Vincent Canby was lyrical in The New York Times: "Absolutely stunning. Mr. Herzog views all the proceedings with fixed detachment. He remains cool. He takes no sides. He may even be slightly amused. This is a splendid and haunting work".
Danny Wolfers is a Dutch electronica producer and DJ who became renowned globally under the name Legowelt. At the request of Filmfestival Gent, Vooruit and Ghent's internet livestream tv station / art collective Stroom, Wolfers composed a new soundtrack for one of his favorite films; Werner Herzog's 'Aguirre, Der Zorn Gottes'. Once described as an extremely intense and colorful live painting, this film tells the story of an obsessive and insane quest for the secret golden city of El Dorado throughout the inhospitable jungles of the Amazon rain forest.

Legowelt is presenting a shortened, more visually oriented version of this film for which he will provide a live soundtrack with synthesizers, partially inspired by the originally enchanting soundtrack of German krautrock band Popol Vuh and the insanity of legendary protagonist Klaus Kinski. The film screening will take place in the Theaterzaal

After the film there will be an after-party in Vooruit's Balzaal, with sets by Chris Ferreira and DJ Nosedrip, among others, in addition to a DJ set by Legowelt himself
