Don Lope de Aguirre (Klaus Kinski), a ruthless Spanish conquistador, vies for power while part of an expedition in Peru to find El Dorado, the mythical seven cities of gold. Accompanied by his daughter, Flores (Cecilia Rivera), Aguirre faces off against his superior, Don Pedro de Ursua (Ruy Guerra), and grows increasingly volatile after seizing control of the group. As Aguirre presses deeper into the Amazonian jungle, he descends further into madness.

Reel Orchestrette creates and performs music for the moving picture. They traverse from ambient soundscapes to post rock to chamber ensemble-esque vibes and beyond.

For their first performance of 2023 (and kicking off their second decade collaborating with Nitehawk Cinema!!) they will be accompanying Werner Herzog’s Aguirre The Wrath Of God.
