Burden of Dreams Presented on 16mm


For Hew Locke, Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo (1982) is an “iconic film about artistic obsession; the hero’s with opera, and the director’s with film, both encapsulated in the central image of a steam ship being moved over a high hill, a feat achieved without special effects. This is dramatically re-emphasised by Les Blank’s film Burden of Dreams (1982), documenting the chaotic making of Fitzcarraldo in the Amazon, in an atmosphere of deadly pressure.” Presented in partnership with Flatpack Festival and the British Film Institute.
