"I am the wrath of God. The earth I pass will see me and tremble. But whoever follows me to the Cinema Dissection, will win untold riches." Werner Herzog's 1972 masterpiece is a work of madness on the screen and in production, but his incredible portrait of Spanish conquistadors in the Andes is much more than an accident. Join Herzog scholar Eric Ames (University of Washington) as he facilitates this participatory exploration of Aguirre, the Wrath of God.
Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Inspired by Roger Ebert's annual Cinema Interruptus in Boulder, CO, attendees will participate with a facilitator in a six hour scene-by-scene, and sometimes shot-by-shot, deconstruction of the featured film. While the facilitator will certainly share their thoughts, anyone in the audience may call out ‘Stop' and either ask a question of the group or make an observation around a certain shot or moment in the film.
