Cobra Verde

Posted in Kulturecast by - May 03, 2016

Chris and Sean kick off May and their Werner Herzog retrospective with a look at his final collaboration with master actor Klaus Kinski, Cobra Verde. The film stars Kinski as the eponymous Cobra Verde as he is tasked with revitalizing the slave trade between Brazil and Ghana. It’s a fantastically Herzogian look at the human soul and the downfall of man that is slavery.
