For the first time on Blu-ray, this early masterpiece from legendary German director Werner Herzog (Fitzcarraldo, Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams and Nosferatu, the Vampyre) is available in a newly restored version.

Shot entirely on location in the wild Amazonian jungle, Aguirre stars the volatile German star, and Herzog regular, Klaus Kinski as a power-crazed explorer in sixteenth-century South America who leads a band of conquistadors through the Amazon in search of El Dorado. An ambitious exploration of doomed adventure and savage beauty, Aguirre remains one of Herzog’s most extraordinary and brilliant achievements.
