Pod #51 – Werner Herzog wilderness special! (Fitzcarraldo & Burden of Dreams)

herzog51 podcast

We recently travelled on Ireland’s tempestuous River Shannon and decided to watch a Werner Herzog double-bill of his 1982 South American adventure Fitzcarraldo which starred the enigmatic Klaus Kinski and the supporting making-of doc Burden of Dreams from director Les Blank.
