Pop Up Kino: Fitzcarraldo

Written and Directed by Werner Herzog

Pop Up Kino presents Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo. Fitzcarraldo, an eccentric impresario by the name of Brian Sweeney Fitzcarraldo, dreams of building an opera house in a remote Peruvian city on the Amazon. In order to finance his dream, he sets out to profit from Peru's booming rubber business, hatching an elaborate plan to bring a steamship over the Andes mountains with the help of the indigenous population. 

University of Houston Professor Dr. Sandra Frieden will introduce the film.
