Burden of Dreams

95' - 1982 - Documentary - Dialogue: German, Spanish, English
Director: Les Blank With: Werner Herzog, Klaus Kinski, Claudia Cardinale, Campa-Indianen uit de Peruviaanse Amazone
A documentary on the chaotic production of Werner Herzog's epic Fitzcarraldo (1982), showing how the film managed to get made despite problems that would have floored a less obsessively driven director. Not only does he have major casting problems, losing both Jason Robards (health) and Mick Jagger (other commitments) halfway through shooting, but the crew gets caught up in a war between Peru and Ecuador, there are problems with the weather and the morale of cast and crew is falling rapidly. — Michael Brooke @everyman.demon.co.uk>
