Synopsis

The hostility of the Amazon and its natural forces reaches superlative levels during the shooting of a film. The overpowering jungle and harsh weather lead the film crew to plot the assassination of the main actor. As in cinema that scrutinizes itself, we revisit in a vertiginous sequence shot a myth of the history of film when in the toughest part of filming FITZCARRALDO, Werner Herzog phantasized about killing actor Klaus Kinski.
