Movies Houstonians Love: Gwen Goffe presents Fitzcarraldo
The popular film series at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Movies Houstonians Love, welcomes the return of one of the institution’s own when Gwen Goffe, former MFAH associate director of investment and finance, hosts Fitzcarraldo. The fanciful effort by director Werner Herzog follows a big-dreaming, opera-loving South American rubber baron as he struggles to construct an opera house in the middle of a jungle. He faces obstacle after obstacle, including the problem of moving a large river boat over an Amazonian mountaintop. Klaus Kinski plays lead character Brian Sweeney “Fitzcarraldo” Fitzgerald, based on the life story of Peruvian entrepreneur Carlos Fitzcarrald.
