Directed by Les Blank | 1982

“I live my life, or I end my life with this project.” So proclaims visionary filmmaker Werner Herzog as he contends with cast changes, warring Indian tribes, inclement weather, half-crazy leading man Klaus Kinski, and his own hubris as he attempts to film his magnum opus, Fitzcarraldo, in the South American jungle. Burden of Dreams—called “one of the most remarkable documentaries ever made about the making of a movie” by Roger Ebert—is a firsthand testament to the very fine line between genius and madness.
