Burden of Dreams (1982)

Synopsis:
A documentary on the chaotic production of 'Werner Herzog' (qv)'s epic _Fitzcarraldo (1982)_ (qv), showing how the film managed to get made despite problems that would have floored a less obsessively driven director. Not only does he have major casting problems, losing both 'Jason Robards' (qv) (health) and 'Mick Jagger' (qv) (other commitments) halfway through shooting, but the crew gets caught up in a war between Peru and Ecuador, there are problems with the weather and the morale of cast and crew is falling rapidly.
