AGUIRRE starring Klaus Kinski has been released on Blu-ray in a LImited Steelbook edition.  

AGUIRRE, WRATH OF GOD (Limited Edition Blu-ray Steelbook)
A film by Werner Herzog

Shot entirely on location in the wild Amazonian jungle near Machu Picchu, Aguirre, Wrath of God stars the legendarily volatile Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu the Vampyre) as Don Lope de Aguirre, a power-crazed sixteenth-century explorer who leads a troupe of conquistadors on a doomed expedition in search of El Dorado, the fabled 'City of Gold'.

A visceral, ambitious exploration of megalomania and savage beauty, Aguirre remains one of Herzog's most brilliant achievements and one of German cinema's totemic masterpieces.

This specially designed, limited edition SteelbookTM is released ahead of an extensive Werner Herzog box set from the BFI, which will include newly remastered HD presentations of 17 of his greatest feature films and shorts.

  • Original mono audio (German and English)

  • Precautions Against Fanatics (1969, 11 mins): short satire about horse-racing enthusiasts

  • Feature-length audio commentary with Werner Herzog for both Aguirre, Wrath of God and Fata Morgana
