Aguirre, the Wrath of God

[1]143 words / 1:31:49

John Morgan and Survive the Jive [2] join Fróði Midjord on the latest Guide to Kulchur [3] to discuss the German filmmaker Werner Herzog’s masterpiece, Aguirre, the Wrath of God. After Fróði discusses the upcoming Scandza Forum [4] conference in Stockholm, the three analyze the film, which is about a mad Spanish Conquistador, played by Klaus Kinski, in the sixteenth-century Amazon who is on a quest to locate the legendary city of El Dorado. The Guide to Kulchur team discuss what the film says about colonialism and the Faustian nature of Western man, its surrealism and symbolism (including a surprising reference to Nordic mythology), and how it fits into Herzog’s oeuvre as a whole. The episode is available on both YouTube and Spreaker (see below).
