It's official! As of today I can now say, with authority, that we're getting a 35mm print of AGUIRRE: THE WRATH OF GOD straight from Herzog's office in Germany. Why is this import such a big deal? Because it's going to be the original - AND ONLY - English 35mm print in existence. Most of the prints people have seen of AGUIRRE were in German with English subtitles, but what most people don't know is that the German was done later in post-synchronization. And Kinski wouldn't do the the dubs because he wanted more money! So not only do you get to see this film (shot with the 35mm camera that Herzog stole from his film school) on the big screen, you get to actually hear it straight from the mouth of madness. The screenings are Sunday, April 4 at 4pm and 7pm only. FREE! These are the only un-interrupted screenings that will take place before the CWA breaks it down as part of Ebert's week-long "cinema interruptus." Herzog will be there Monday and Tuesday only! This is truly a once-in-lifetime event not to be missed.

Synopsis A few decades after the destruction of the Inca empire, a Spanish expedition leaves the mountains of Peru and goes down the Amazon river in search of gold and wealth. Soon, they come across great difficulties and Don Aguirres, a ruthless man who cares only about riches, becomes their leader. But will his quest lead them to "the golden city", or to certain destruction? Written by Chris Makrozahopoulos {}
