Fitzcarraldo

Fitzcarraldo Lowest new price: $74.78
Lowest used price: $19.95
List price: $19.98

Klaus Kinski, Claudia Cardinale. Directed by Werner Herzog. A man hires natives in a South American jungle to pull his 320-ton steamship over a mountain in this breathtaking drama. 1982/color/157 min/PG.

Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald (Klaus Kinski), known as Fitzcarraldo to the native Peruvians, is an avid opera lover and rubber baron who dreams of building an opera house in the Peruvian jungle. To accomplish this, he plans to reach an isolated patch of rubber trees and make his fortune. But these trees are not directly accessible by river because of dangerous rapids, so Fitzcarraldo runs his ship as close as possible via an alternate river and then enlists the aid of the native Peruvians to drag his ship over a mountain to the desired area. However, the natives seem to have their own agenda in so mysteriously acceding to Fitzcarraldo's wishes. The results manage to both mock and affirm the dreams of determined figures like Fitzcarraldo, making absurdity out of the stuff of human endeavor without negating the beauty of that effort. There is hardly a more awe-inspiring or arresting image than that of Fitzcarraldo's ship pulling itself up the mountain with cables and pulleys, or of the ship resting in mid-ascent as seen through the thick morning fog of the jungle.

The tortured production history of Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo (ably recorded in Les Blank's documentary Burden of Dreams) tends to take the spotlight away from this deeply mesmerizing film. And that's unfortunate, because the film itself is even more fascinating than the trials and tribulations, amazing though they might be, that led to its being made. Part of the problem is the film's deliberate, some might say ponderous, pace, which invites the viewer to experience the slow immersion into the jungle that Fitzcarraldo and company experience. Herzog did something similar in Aguirre, the Wrath of God, sometimes aiming his camera at the river rapids for extended periods of time, with hypnotic results. This could never happen in a Hollywood film, and it should be treasured. --Jim Gay

Madeinusa is a girl aged 14 with a sweet Indian face who lives in an isolated village in the Cordillera Blanca Mountain range of Peru. This strange place is characterized by its religious fervor.

During the two holy days sin does not exist: God is dead and cant see what is happening. Everything is accepted and allowed, without remorse. Year after year, Madeinusa and her sister Chale, and her father Don Cayo, the Mayor and local big shot, maintain this tradition without questioning it.

Gods (Dioses) - Amazon.com Exclusive

In director Josué Méndez's stylishly composed second feature, Elisa—the soon-to-be-wife of a wealthy industrialist—is eager to shed her working-class background in favor of the opulence of her fiance's elite lifestyle.

To her dismay, she soon realizes her hopes to slip into magazine-ready images of domestic splendor must also include her future stepchildren: Diego, who is hounded by his overbearing father and reluctantly preparing to enter the family business, and Andrea, Diego's party-girl sister and the object of both his desire and disgust. As Elisa embraces her new life of lavish parties and beachfront estates, Diego and Andrea rebel against their upper-class upbringing, setting the stage for an ironic contrast of fate and ambition in this biting satire on upper-crust wealth and privilege.

"Backed by excellent performances and stylishly composed images...Mendez's coolly scathing satire of Peru's upper classes conveys the anguished hollowness beneath shallow spirituality and material extravagance."
-Museum of Modern Art

"Featuring beautiful cinematography by Mario Bassino, 'Dioses' is an intelligent slice-of-life portrait of the shallow, materialistic relationships among the Peruvian upper class, a socially conscious depiction of the vapid emptiness of connection they have with each other, themselves, and the real world."
-This Week In New York

Gods is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Shaping Society through Dance: Mestizo Ritual Performance in the Peruvian Andes

Shaping Society through Dance: Mestizo Ritual Performance in the Peruvian Andes Lowest new price: $54.67
Lowest used price: $57.51
List price: $60.00
Author: Zoila S. Mendoza

During the patron saint fiesta in the Andean town of San Jerónimo, Peru, crowds gather at sunset in the town square, eagerly awaiting the entrance of the colorful dance troupes, or comparsas. With their masks, music, and surprising interpretations of contemporary events, the comparsas of the Cusco region are the focus of this multifaceted work. At the crossroads of folklore and ritual, mass media and local preferences, and regional and national identity, the comparsas—recorded here on VHS, DVD, and compact disc—have become a powerful way for the local people to make sense of their place in Peru and in the world. As Zoila Mendoza shows, they do more than reflect societal changes, they actively transform society.

In this fluid world, she argues, racial and ethnic identities are shaped more by notions of what is decent, elegant, and modern rather than by skin color or status. As the different troupes vie for the townspeople's recognition as the most "authentic" group, these notions are challenged and reworked. A fascinating look at a rich tradition, this innovative work is also a compelling example of the critical anthropology of performance.

Life Kills Me (La Vida Me Mata) – Amazon.com Exclusive

Life and death come wrapped in a mutual embrace, both absurd and poignant, in this smart comedy about an unlikely friendship between a grieving cinematographer and a morbidly obsessed drifter.

At work on a seriously schlocky, low-budget horror film, Gaspar is still reeling from the untimely death of his beloved older brother when he meets Alvaro at yet another premature funeral. A mildly sociopathic young man with an unyielding curiosity for the dark side, Alvaro soon coaxes Gaspar out of his shell in unexpected ways, in a debut film that pulses with a sure cinematic style as it channels a compassionate vision of frail, formidable, unforgettable lives.

"La vida me mata is a film full of enigmatic visuals that shows us in a fun and fresh way the complexity of family relationships, friends, and life itself. Silva proves himself here to be a remarkable young talent with a strong voice and a clear vision." -International Latino FF

"Diaz provides a fascinating central performance, maintaining a dry cool while registering as alternately on top of things or slightly dazed by forces he can't quite grasp." –Variety
