For his 1982 film, director Werner Herzog pulled a 300-ton steamship over a mountain under its own steam. In this highly theatrical performance work, the performers, taking on the role of the Collective Ego of Werner Herzog & megalomaniac Klaus Kinski, ponder the significance of dreams and the insanity one must invest in pursuing the useless conquest of unconscious wishes. Pulling and culling from a myriad of source texts, videos, and dreams, Buran uses its distinctive style to situate itself between high and low culture- creating mayhem, shooting cap guns, prompting sing-a-longs, and integrating a folksy existentialism to explore our nature as beings who cannot help but desire our own dumb dreams.
