Burden Of Dreams is a chilling account of German filmmaker Werner Herzog’s obsession to complete the painfully plagued jungle shooting of his film ”Fitzcarraldo”. Disaster after disaster befalls Herzog’s tale of a penniless opera-mad dreamer (Klaus Kinski) who risks everything to build a grand opera house in the jungle river port of Iquitos. Burden Of Dreams grows into a fascinating record of an obsessed genius and his battle to finish the project in the face of plane crashes, torrential rains, attacks by armed, hostile Indians, the loss of several leading actors, and the eruption of a full-fledged border war around him. A unique glimpse of where film mirrors reality as Herzog is actually experiencing what his lead character is meant to.
