Directed by Terry Gilliam | 1988

With John Neville, Eric Idle, Sarah Polley, Robin Williams, Uma Thurman

John Glassie—author of A Man of Misconceptions, the story of legendary 17th-century German polymath/crackpot Athanasius Kircher—will connect The Adventures of Baron Munchausen to some delightful pre-scientific notions.

Monty Python alum Gilliam’s retina-bewildering adaptation of Rudolf Erich Raspe’s tall tales—which defied the scientific certainties of the Age of Enlightenment—recounts the outlandish exploits of an 18th-century German nobleman. Join Glassie in discovering the quirks of science history through the lens of this lavish fantasy.
