About This Show

In the mid-16th century, after annihilating the Incan empire, Gonzalo Pizarro leads his army of conquistadors over the Andes in search of the fabled City of Gold, El Dorado. As Pizarro’s soldiers battle starvation, the forces of nature, Indians and each other, Don Lope de Aguirre, “The Wrath of God,” is consumed with visions of conquering all of South America and leads his own army on a doomed quest into oblivion. Aguirre, The Wrath of God (1972) is directed by Werner Hertzog.
