Burden of Dreams is an extraordinary documentary about the messianic German director Werner Herzog struggling against desperate odds in the Amazon basin to make his epic feature, Fitzcarraldo.
Burden of Dreams received a British Academy Award for Best Documentary of 1982, and many consider it Blank's most awesome film. Derek Malcolm of The Guardian in London named Burden of Dreams as one of the best 100 films of the twentieth century.
See it on the Hillside Club's big screen, followed by Q and A with filmmakers Les Blank and Maureen Gosling. $10.
