Overview

Fitzcarraldo
By Werner Herzog, 1982, 157 min.

Klaus Kinski stars (alongside Claudia Cardinale) as Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald, an opera-loving entrepreneur who sets out to make his fortune in the rubber business and build an opera house in the Peruvian jungle. The film notoriously involves transporting a 340-ton steamship over a mountain - an incredible feat that enticed Les Blank to make a behind-the-scenes documentary on the film, the Burden of Dreams.

$10 general; $8 SFMOMA members, students, and seniors. Tickets are available at the Museum (with no surcharge) or online.
