All old Fitz wants is his precious opera house, the Amazon be damned. So, a steamboat needs to be dragged over a huge muddy hill to make it happen. They did it in the movie, and they dragged that boat up the hill in real life too. Herzog called it a great metaphor for something, but wasn’t sure what. It’s about being a goddamn lunatic, dude.
