50th Anniversary Screening “Aguirre, the Wrath of God” with Werner Herzog and Jose Koechlin

Partnering with Boca Raton Museum of Art and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Join us for this special night to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1972 epic historical drama film produced, written and directed by visionary Werner Herzog. Not only do attendees watch the film, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, but they join in a riveting discussion with Werner Herzog and the film’s co-producer, José Koechlin

The film documents the fictional journey of Don Lope de Aguirre, a ruthless Spanish conquistador, who vies for power while in Peru searching for El Dorado, the mythical empire of gold. Watch as Aguirre presses deeper into the Amazonian jungle and descends further into madness.

Following the screening, the international, award-winning filmmaker shares tales of the extraordinary feats undertaken to create this film. Both Herzog and Koechlin discuss the true adventures and unrepeatable achievements in the making of their films in the Peruvian Amazon. Working diligently to achieve their goals in film and sustainable tourism, they continue to portray the true character of Peru and the remarkable Machu Picchu.
