Aguirre, The Wrath Of God

Based on the journals of Brother Gaspar de Carvajal, and tells a hallucinatory tale of Spanish colonialists searching for El Dorado, the legendary city of gold, in 16th century Peru. When the travellers reach an impass, a scouting party is assembled to search for any traces of the mythical empire, As they attempt to forge their way through the dense jungle, more and more the party falls ill while their ruthless leader, Don Lope de Aguirre (Klaus Kinski), grows increasingly insane.
